Royal Treasures from the Louvre: Louis XIV to Marie-Antoinette
The French decorative arts are amazing. I was stunned by some painted doors saved from the Tuileries. At the end of the show is a small room with a few of Marie-Antoinette’s furnishings. I was captivated by a small Sevres porcelain bust of Marie-Antoinette from 1782. As I was standing there drawing her, she came to life to life for me on the page. I left wanting more.
