I suppose I really seemed mad, then; but it was only through the awfulness of having said nothing but the truth, and being thought to be deluded.

Quick edit before work. Hope everyone is having a lovely day while we still have our internet for free.
Kirsten Dunst as Marie Antoinette, one of my favourite movies and she’s so cute
I read a biography of Marie Antoinette once and while the film is not accurate at all I feel like Coppola and Dunst captured the innocence and naivety of Antoinette while also showing how her power was taken from her.
SWIPE ⏩ This is the original French text of the October 16, 1793 letter written by Marie-Antoinette Queen of France a few hours before her execution to her sister-in-law Madame Elisabeth. An English translation is included below, as well as images of the original letter. #marieantoinette#queenoffrance
I never posted the finished piece, so here she is! Velvet Taco Restaurants commissioned this piece from me this year, and although I may never hear whether they liked it or not (working with big companies is weird), I'm very proud of her.
Looking forward to making more personal pieces in the upcoming year and seeing what opportunities pass my way. I've been hearing that the best way to approach an art career, whatever that might mean to you, is to always say yes... on the other hand I've also heard that you have to learn when to say no. SO! I'm interpreting that as saying yes to opportunities that scare you and push you beyond your imagined limits, while being able to turn down projects that you don't feel good about and you know might waste your creative energies. Here's hoping that I'm able to to implement these ideas into my practice, and that you are able to push yourself as well!

~The women's castel, Le Petit Trianon • The Empress Eugenie • ~
The Empress Eugénie de Montijo felt for Marie-Antoinette a sympathy close to devotion and devote her a real cult. we find this need for identification, pushed to syncretism, in paintings by Franz Xaver Winterhalter staging, in an evocation of Le Petit Trianon's garden.
During the 1867 World's Fair, the Empress wantes to organize a retrospective in honor of the Sovereign, congratulating herself that "after a century of wandering, her soul finally returns to her haven of Trianon". Eudore Soulié, the first real conservator of Versailles, is responsible of collecting artworks about Marie-Antoinette. On the instructions of Louis-Joseph Napoléon Lepic, aide-de-camp of Napoleon III and supervisor of the building site, the small castle is emptied of his Empire furniture. .
In the absence of historical accuracy, the first floor is entirely filled with 144 objects "having been or presumed to have been for the Queen's use". The restoration costs 5,000 francs. Following this event, the Petit Trianon became a museum dedicated to the eighteenth century and Marie Antoinette, queen whose myth begins to impose gradually.

~ The women's castel, Le Petit Trianon • The Duchess of Orleans • ~ .
With the July Monarchy, the royal family settled in Le Grand Trianon in 1837. Le Petit Trianon is attributed to the dauphin and his wife, the Duke and Duchess of Orleans. They occupy the former Queen's room and the attic apartment.
Very quickly, with the supply of two new cabinetmakers, Alphonse Jacob-Desmalter and Louis-Édouard Lemarchand, the castle is refitted to allow a comfort that he had never experienced before. It is also adapted to modern conveniences, with the creation of two small bathrooms in the center of the building and a private spiral staircase allowing better communication between the apartments of the couplee. The house is no longer a royal palace but a country house, adapted to the taste of the moment. .
The Duchess, who continues to stay in Trianon after the accidental death of her husband, no longer has the taste of this castle she finds sad, considering herself "in exile". .

~The women's castle, Le Petit Trianon • Pauline Bonaparte and the Empress Marie-Louise • ~
The Petit Trianon, abandoned after the departure of the royal family in 1789, stripped of all its furniture in1793 and even temporarily transformed into a hotel, is made available for Pauline Borghese, favorite sister of Emperor Napoleon I, respecting the tradition of this residence which remains the "castle of women". In 1805, all the room were repainted. The carpenter Benoît-François Boulard is entrusted the task of refurnishing the apartments, in a style approaching the Old Regime. The Empress Josephine, who will never live in the castle of Petit Trianon, participates in the choice of fabrics and furniture. Although the architect Trepsat ordered the return of paintings deposited at the Versailles Museum during the Revolution. The princess Pauline, who greatly appreciates the castle, stayed there for nearly two months in June and July 1805, then one last time in December 1809, when Napoleon returned to Trianon to prepare the estate for his new wife.
The Empress, Archduchess Marie-Louise of Austria, is the grand-niece of Marie-Antoinette. His marriage to Napoleon is a consequence of the "Treaty of Schoenbrunn" (after the name of the palace where Marie Antoinette grew up). From Le Grand Trianon, she escapes to Le Petit Trianon, which reminds her the castle of Laxenburg, where she grew up. She lodges in her grand-aunt's room, entirely redecorated with extravagance, under a dome of gold-embroidered silk, which hides the original woodwork. She rehabilitates the small theater and gives again sumptuous celebrations in the gardens.
