“Portrait of Marie Antoinette“

Art Inspiration: queen and chiffon dress

25 days ago in ,Re-art

Inspired by art work of Louise Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun:

Marie Antoinette en chemise,

portrait of the queen in a "muslin" dress, 1738

Very untypical choice of material for a dress. Therefore this controversial portrait was viewed by her critics to be improper for a queen.
