Ball In The Strasbourg Theatre
Fine art print about Paris by Francois Courboin
Titled An official ball in the Strasbourg Theatre, 1805. The attire of Napoleon's court, and consequently the mode for his entourage, was codified in 1804. The woman on the right is dressed very similarly to the code for the empress. Her dress is white silk, embroidered in gold. The woman on the left is wearing a more simple, white empire-waist dress. White remained a very popular color for women during the Empire period.
