Happy Birthday Marie Antoinette: Nov 2, 1755 to Oct 16, 1793

Happy Birthday Marie Antoinette: Nov 2, 1755  to Oct 16, 1793


  1. Gorgeous miniature. Nineteenth-century? Obviously based on Vigée-Lebrun's portrait of her with her children - but minus the headress, of course, and her coiffure brought more in line with a nineteenth-century sensibility...? : ) Beautiful, at any rate.

  2. Hi Stephilius

    Yes this is after one of my favorite artist Vigée-Lebrun. It is a spectacular 19th century copy but I don’t know that much about it other then it is housed in the Louvre in Paris.
