Imperial Art

Napoleonic French Empire Period
Imperial Art was founded in 2016 by Tarik Bougherira. The gallery, mainly focusing on the French Napoleonic Empire, proposes fine arts and antiques of this period. Thanks to Tarik’s 9 years long experience of the international art market, being a former collection manager in the greatest privately owned Empire related collection for which he organized several exhibitions all over the world (USA, Europe, Canada, China…), Imperial Art helps and advises both individuals and institutions to acquire art pieces or manage existing collections. Settled in Beijing China since September 2019 and Paris, France, in the very heart of Paris art market district, Imperial Art pursues it development and proudly contributes to spreading the French spirit and imperial greatness, in France and abroad. Imperial Art Gallery works closely with the Chateau de Fontainebleau but also the Napoleon Fondation, for their exhibitions and acquisitions projects. 2021 will be a very important year in the commemoration of the history of Napoleon. The gallery is working on many exhibitions projects, notably with the Musée de l'Armée, Paris but also with the jeweler Chaumet for a great exhibition on Napoleon and Joséphine at the renowned Place Vendôme, Paris.
