Introduction
Image Analysis- Late 18th Century
Marie Antoinette and her children Elizabeth Vigee Lebrun
doting
motherly
humble
not a royal depiction, but rather one of wealth
warm environment
propaganda; both formal and informal
response to an underground slander campaign against her
not exhibited
you cant see her feet- high up as a queen-
petite, idealized, romanticized
Marie Antoinette -rough sketch by Jacques Louis David
has been stripped of royalty
plain clothes
visibly aged
on her way to her execution
hands tied behind her back
masculine
powerful and angry posture
her feet are planted o the ground- mortal weight
done in live time
