Marie-Antoinette, queen of France
Reproduction patinated by hand. Mold made from an imprint of the original work.
On the occasion of the reopening of the eighteenth century rooms of the department of art objects of the Louvre Museum, the Réunion des Musées Nationaux - Grand Palais molding workshop publishes an exceptional piece.
Queen Marie Antoinette is represented here in all her glory, adorned with her finest attire. A delicate ribbon, studded with precious stones, sumptuously crowns the head-dress of the sovereign. The complexity of the rendering is matched only by the delicacy of her bodice's lace and the richness of her garment's fabrics. A real tour de force, the model was executed by one of the most famous sculptors of the late 18th century, Louis Simon Boizot.
