Portrait of Joséphine de Beauharnais (Robert Lefevre - 1805)
Joséphine, Chaumet's first muse. Marie-Josèphe-Rose, the future Empress, was given her pet name of “Joséphine” by Napoleon Bonaparte. A woman of power and taste, Joséphine became the first eminent customer of Marie-Etienne Nitot, Chaumet’s founder, in 1780. Chaumet is now dedicating its new jewellery collection to Joséphine, a modern, free-thinking, daring woman.
