Style Empire

Isaac Kremer/ September 9, 2018/ / 0 comments

In French, and always pronounced in French, the style of the Napoleonic empire; an elaboration of the style of the later part of the reign of Louis XVI. In which the severest and classically inspired design of about 1780 is overlaid by rather incongruous ornamentation, and loses much of its charm. This style had, however, so brief a reign that it is impossible to judge of what is development might have been. It is the last of the naturally developed styles of Western Europe, and has been succeeded by the chaos of modern times. (Kremer, 2023)
