FIRST EMPIRE

Image by Kate Zh

A style which underlines the magnificence of the Napoleonic triumph.

The decorative motifs recall the Greek, Roman and Egyptian ones (in great vogue after the famous Egyptian campaign).

Sphinxes, temples, swans, winged victories and laurel wreaths - reduced in dimensions and in thickness - acquire sober and linear decorative styles, losing the noble symbolic recall.
