Marie-AntoinetteLog in to see prices
Reproduction patinated by hand. Mold made from an imprint of the original work.
Whether bust, medallion, in the form of allegories, with her husband or her children, Marie-Antoinette was the subject of many objects stated in registers but which disappeared with the Revolution.
This object is an idealized portrait of the queen instead of the evocation of a sovereign at the height of her power as evoked by Boizot's model. The head is slightly turned to the right, the shoulders are covered with a fabric tied for a natural effect, she is wearing a diadem decorated with lily flower and settled by a row of pearls.
Every detail reflects the royalist iconography, which implies that, although the exact creation date is unknown, the bust was probably made during Restoration.
