Architectural History and Criticism | Architecture
This chapter discusses the influences on Charles Percier's style and the ways in which there were continuities between his design aesthetics during the post-French Revolution period and earlier architects. Furthermore, with the accession of Napoleon Bonaparte, Percier fully deployed his ornamental strategy to give legitimacy to the upstart imperial court.
