Dominique-Vivant Denon’s multiple talents make for a fascinating biography. What relationship did Denon maintain with the governing power under the Ancien Régime, during the Revolution and the Empire? What methods did this outstanding administrator, arts director and creator of the “Napoleon Museum” use? What role did he play in the history of art, as artist, collector, “museologist” ante litteram and the man who confronted the difficult dialogue between taste and theory?
