Marie Antoinette and her children at the Tuileries

11 January 2012

A charming miniature of Marie Antoinette with Madame Royale and Louis-Charles, painted in early 1790 by François Dumont. It was almost certainly commissioned in 1789 but was not destined to be completed until the family were already imprisoned in the Tuileries and such happy, bucolic pleasures were a distant memory.
