Celebrating a period during which historical ideals and past traditions were glorified, The Romantic Age features a diverse array of fans ranging from intricate brisé models to Franco-Spanish examples decorated with subjects such as the operas of Rossini – at their most popular during the 1820s-1830s following the composer’s celebrated tour of Spain.

Additionally, fans which reflect the troubadour style and a return to the chivalric principles of the past will be on display alongside fans commemorating Napoleon and the return of his ashes to France in 1840.
