Marie-Antoinette in Art

Post  Elena on Tue Oct 25, 2011 7:24 pm

First topic message reminder :

Here is a picture I found on Anna Amber's site, along with some interesting information.http://vivelareine.tumblr.com/post/11584753502
Portrait of Marie Antoinette, Queen of France (1755-1793), three-quarter-length, seated, at the Conciergerie, Paris, in mourning, with a cameo pendant portraying the Dauphin, holding a life of Mary, Queen of Scots, a bust of Louis XVI and the Testament of 23 December 1792 on the draped table beside inscribed ‘HIS.DE LA.M. DE STUAR[T]’ (lower centre, on the book)

I never knew she was reading a book about Mary Queen of Scots. Exclamation

Yeah, you dun gotta accept every one of a philosopher's tenets to enjoy him. I enjoy some tidbits of Rousseau myslef but I'm more of a John Locke girl overall. Hmmm... Maybe some Montesquieu. Hook me up with some Bastiat too.

Though I guess we're starting to leave the enlightenment now.

heh, all this mixing-and-matching of philosophers. I'm just thinking of the Lou Bega song "Mambo five" with philospher names instead of ladies.


A little bit of Montesquieu in my life
A little bit of Bastiat by my side
A little bit of Rousseau is all I need
A little bit of Voltaire is what I see
A little bit of de Sade in the sun
A little bit of Franklin all night long
A little bit of Jefferson here I am
A little bit of Locke makes me your girl

*cough* I got off topic.

Look! A Marie-Antoinette paper doll I found!


I got it fromhttp://unspeakablevice.tumblr.com/post/65479057549/french-revolution-paper-dolls-not-mine-sourcebut they got it from a google file dump and I know the google file dumper got it from somewhere else so I dunno what the original source is

Bunnies wrote:...how he inspired the revolutionaries to, y'know, revolutionize...
I think the real Rousseau, if he hadn't died in 1778, would have killed himself if he had found out what the revolutioners made out from his theories. He also declared that some of his ideas, for example the "eternal peace" in Europe, can only be achieved with terrible and inhuman methods. (I can't quote it word by word, because I read it in Hungarian... Embarassed )

In general, I don't find ironic that the Enlightenment philosophy (not only Rousseau but others, too) affected many different people of many different social groups, who had many different political views. Our totally conservative and obnoxious Hungarian nobles, who wanted Joseph II not to prescribe some decrees that might have made the poor peasants' lives better, also cited Rousseau. This is not ironic anymore, this is sarcastic Laughing So, Enlightenment wasn't a privilege of revolutionary thinkers, it was simply the age they lived in. Everyone was enlighted, they only interpreted the new views in another way.

(And if the photographer wanted to mock Antoinette simply because she's reading, it's another fail - she also read David Hume's historical works, according to Charles Duke Yonge.)

*on topic*

Did you all see the illustrations of a certain Victoria Holt novel that have spread in the internet? I love them! Rolling Eyes

Bunnies, are you referring to The Queen's Confession?  I borrowed a copy from my high school library.  It was a hardback edition and could've passed as a mass paperback.  The cover on it, to me, screamed '70s!  Laughing

I don't think Rousseau would've killed himself, but then I don't really think the thread titled "Marie Antoiette In Art" is a proper place to have a throwndown over an analysis of a philosopher's tenets. But perhaps this is just a sign of our variance in perspectives. I have a lower opinion of Rousseau and a higher opinion of the Revolution than most members in the forum so it's possible I'm just averaging the pair out. If we'd really like to discuss it though, maybe we could make another thread? I don't want to clog this one with off-topic jabber. Embarassed

Huh, am I? Or are you talking to Sophie? I'm just jabbering about nothing, really, same as always. If I accidentally said something relevant then...Well, even a broken clock is still right twice a day, isn't it? Laughing

I'm excessively curious about your opinion, so I would like to have a Rousseau topic under "Books and Movies", for instance... but as usual, I'm not sure if I can present some qualitative contrary opinions... I mean, I like Rousseau, but it was not yesterday when I read him (or others about his works) for the last time, so I'm not prepared enough for a real discussion... Embarassed But please, I want to read about how a true revolutioner as you sees Rousseau! Very Happy 

Huh, am I? Or are you talking to Sophie?
Yes, I suppose it was for me Smile Yes, the title is The Queen's Confessions, but I know nothing about the book. Whether it's good or bad, if I look at these cute illustrations, I'm sure it was worth publishing it!

They think they are being ironic to show Marie-Antoinette reading Rousseau! Well guess what! Marie-Antoinette DID read Rousseau, and even went to visit his grave!Rolling Eyes 
I just want to clarify my meaning. When I said "massive stupidity" I was referring to the article, not to the photograph. The photographs by Holly Marie Armishaw are masterpieces of poignant historical recreation. I like the above photo very much!sunny

Thank you for making that clear, Mata. Ms. Armishaw wrote to me, and was perturbed by what she perceived to be criticism of her work. I understand her feelings. I, too, like the photo very much and find Ms. Armishaw's work to be brilliant. I welcome her as a member of this Forum. I wish also to be clear that my problem is with the article, not with her work.
http://blogs.vancouversun.com/2013/10/23/holly-marie-armishaw-reflective-surfaces-with-conceptual-depth/

The article appears to assume that Marie-Antoinette never read Rousseau and was indifferent to the plight of the people. Ms. Armishaw's research was quite extensive and so that is not the meaning she meant to convey. I am personally struck by the beauty of the photo..

Oops, I also wrote "photographer" in a previous critical comment. I'm terribly sorry if I hurt Ms Armishaw's feelings! Embarassed Of course, her photo is an artwork that can be interpreted in many ways, and it's not her fault if some "interpreters" lack some basic knowledge when coming across her works. The photo in itself is a wonderful occasion to arouse some interest, or even the desire for research, in some people who in the end realize their misconceptions about the "stupid and indifferent" Antoinette. So again, sorry for the misunderstanding!

I don't even have a problem with the article. But maybe I'm misunderstanding it? The author expressed surprise that she saw Antoinette with a book on philosophy. Most people would be. While we know otherwise, the average Jacques isn't going to be aware of Antoinette's nuanced literary tastes. I don't think expressing surprise that Antoinette read Rousseau is necessarily an ignoramus. I expressed surprise when I learned Hitler was a vegetarian or that Anne Boleyn was religious. These things are shocking right out of the gate. And the author never says the photograph is inaccurate, just that it challenges the viewer to "reconsider" their "contemporary idea of the historic figure." And it does.

I think this is a portrait of Marie-Antoinette before her marriage since she is shown with the archducal crown.

So pretty! I love it <3

I am also very fond of the miniature of her as Venus (I think she's supposed to represent her there).

Someone suggested (I believe it was Elena) that it might have been made as a present to her husband as commemoration of the consummation of their marriage, especially since it happened as she was rising from her bath, romantic! Smile

All of these pictures are lovely!

This is an engraving dating to 1847. It shows Marie Antoinette, Louis XVI, Marie Therese Charlotte, Louis Charles, and Madame Elisabeth walking in the courtyard on the Temple Prison in 1792.

Did I mention it's in my collection? Because it is and I'm very fond of it, I just have to get a frame to properly display it! Very Happy
