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

It does look like the Queen.

Here is a post from Madame Guillotine about all of the Vigée Lebrun portraits of Marie Antoinette.

The twenty year old Queen by Jean-Baptiste-André Gautier-Dagoty (1740-1786) who often painted her. He is not to be confused with his father, the famed engraver of human anatomy, Jacques Fabien Gautier d'Agoty.

She's so admirable here... there's dignity and forgiveness in her face at the same time. And how the man on the other side looks her! It's so beautiful, thank you for sharing it!

Another variation on the same theme: Jacques-Louis David draws the famous sketch about her, painted by Joseph Emanuel van den Bussche.

Figurines of Marie Antoinette

Post  Princess Soo-Won on Sat Jun 22, 2013 9:59 am

Since I love dolls and figurines, I thought I'd share some of my favorite ones of Marie Antoinette.

From "Historical Figures of George Stuart" (http://www.galleryhistoricalfigures.com/) 

He has made several figurines of the French Queen, each representing a different stage in her life.

It is amazing how hairstyles shot up in the mid-1770's.

Another rare picture of the entire royal family. The Queen has her hands clasped like a Madonna.

Really lovely! Now here is a piece of massive stupidity:
http://blogs.vancouversun.com/2013/10/23/holly-marie-armishaw-reflective-surfaces-with-conceptual-depth/
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

HOW IRONIC!!Shocked  Yes, MA read Rousseau. They even have her doing so in the Coppola film.

Well admittedly, the author of the article adds the caveat that "Whether or not the real Marie-Antoinette had anything to do with Rousseau is irrelevant." She acknowledges the possibility. And I'd agree with her that Antoinette's early fascination with Rousseau is pretty ironic, considering his egalitarian theories and how he inspired the revolutionaries to, y'know, revolutionize...

Yes. I think what the Queen admired was his back-to-nature philosophy and his ideas on education. But, yes, it is ironic. The real Rousseau gave all of his own children to an orphanage so he would not have to take care of them.
