CAROLE PETIPHER


THE COLLECTION OF NAPOLEON AND JOSEPHINE


This lecture gives an insight into one of history's most famous couples. How was Napoleon such an excellent self promoter? What was it that drove him? What on the other hand drove his wife? And what was it that made Napoleon and Josephine one of the most followed couples in history? These questions can be answered giving a true insight into their character by exploring the collections at the Chateau de Malmaison.

Carole Petipher is a guide and lecturer on combined history/art tours in France, with over ten years' experience. Life aboard river vessels on the Seine, Oise, Marne and Rhone offered the chance to explore and further research certain riverside locations linked to art, which helped develop in-depth knowledge. She also has experience working with NADFAS groups in her capacity as a private guide for a privately owned stately home in the UK.
