Cambaceres (1753-1824) To contact me



Cambaceres leaves only one made painting of alive(the painting of Schopin dating from the Second Empire) : this one was given by Cambaceres to Joseph-Basile Ducos, regent of the Bank of France. This painting is lost today.
One knows two small portraits carried out with the pencil by Frederic de Houdetot, when he was auditor at the Council of State and an anonymous watercolour found with a letter in the files of the Bank of France.

Second personality of the State after Bonaparte, Cambaceres very often appears in the tables illustrating the imperial legend : in particular in the collection of the Museum of French glories in Versailles.
