Louis XVII in Art VLB13
Louis-Charles, Duc de Normandie, is the baby sitting on his mother's lap, as the children make ready the cradle for the new baby. The Queen is wearing a maternity dress, with an adjustable waistline.

Louis XVII in Art Louis_Charles_of_France6
This picture is almost always said to be Louis-Charles, the second son of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette. Others, including myself, believe it to be the Dauphin Louis-Joseph, who died in June 1789 at the age of seven of tuberculosis. The painting, by Kucharski, was completed in 1790, when Louis-Charles was a plump 5 year old whereas Louis-Joseph would have been a slender 8 year old. Louis-Joseph was slender, frail and delicate, with chestnut hair and ethereal blue eyes, like his mother's. Louis-Charles was robust and husky, like his papa; a "peasant child," his mother described him. He had blond hair and was very mischievous.

Louis XVII in Art Louis_Charles_of_France2
A portrait of Louis-Charles in 1790, the "peasant child," later Louis XVII, who was so tormented in the Temple prison, after being torn from his mother's arms.

Louis XVII in Art Louisxvii-1789
The Dauphin Louis-Charles, Louis XVII. One can see the fear and confusion in the once cheerful little countenance, having witnessed the mob screaming for his mother's entrails. He was one of many, many French children who would suffer unspeakably during the Revolution.

Louis XVII in Art Empty Apotheosis of Louis XVII

Post  Elena on Mon Mar 05, 2012 11:01 pm

Louis XVII in Art F1
From Vive la Reine. Louis XVII is welcomed into heaven by (left to right) an angel, his aunt Madame Elisabeth, his father Louis XVI, a maiden in armor (Jehanne d'Arc? La France?), a small child who is probably Louis-Joseph, and his mother Marie-Antoinette. The angel is crowning Elisabeth with the white crown of virginity. The angel carrying Louis-Charles is delivering him from a serpent who is snapping at his feet.

http://vivelareine.tumblr.com/post/26444830033
From Madame Royale's memoirs:
On the 3d of July, they read us a decree of the Convention ordering that my brother be separated from us and lodged in a more secure room in the Tower. Hardly had he heard it when he flung himself into his mother’s arms uttering loud cries, and imploring not to be parted from her. My mother, on her side, was struck down by the cruel order; she would not give up her son, and defended, against the municipals, the bed on which she placed him. They, absolutely determined to have him, threatened to employ violence and to call up the guard. My mother told them they would have to kill her before they could tear her child from her. An hour passed in resistance on her part, in threats and insults from the municipals, in tears and efforts from all of us.

At last they threatened my mother so positively to kill him and us also that she had to yield for love of us. We rose, my aunt and I, for my poor mother no longer had any strength, but after we had dressed him she took him and gave him into the hands of the municipals herself, bathing him with tears and foreboding that she would never see him again. The poor little boy kissed us all very tenderly and went away in tears with the municipals.

My mother charged them to ask permission of the Council general to let her see her son, if only at meals, and they promised her to do so. She was overcome by the separation; but her anguish was at its height when she learned that Simon, a shoemaker, whom she had seen as a municipal, was intrusted with the care of the unfortunate child. She asked incessantly to see him, but could not obtain it; my brother, on his side, wept for two whole days, never ceasing to ask to see us.

"Le Dauphin avec son chien", huile sur toile du XVIIIème siècle à rapprocher du N° 340 du livret du Salon de 1789 qui mentionne l'existence d'un tableau envoyé par Madame Vigée-Lebrun figurant un "portrait du Dauphin Louis-Charles, tenant un chien dans ses bras".

From Tiny-Librarian: http://tiny-librarian.tumblr.com/post/56065524026/louis-xvii-in-the-temple-prison

This is an interesting picture since it shows the Dauphin as quite a big boy. Those who cared for the sick child before his death at age 10 on June 8, 1795 said that he looked much older. This is said to be because tuberculosis causes an elongation of the bones and the illness aged him as well. And perhaps he was big for his age.

Antoinette did always say he was a sturdy little boy, much moreso than his brother. She referred to him as her little "Peasant's child" if I recall right. And Louis was quite a tall man as well, perhaps he took after his father in that way.
