Marie Antoinette Illustration





A few weeks ago, I watched Marie Antoinette for the nth time! Truth be told, I don't get tired from watching the stated film. I started adoring Marie Antoinette during our art history class and I am just so amazed! In all honesty, it was King Louis XIV whom I adored and fantasized about (haha!) because he founded ballet! But as time goes by, I started appreciating the other royalties, including, the ever so fabulous Marie Antoinette. :">

I just loooooooooove her so much! I mean, almost all girls who loves French History or Art History, loves her; adores her; wants to be like her ----me included. And so, while watching the movie, I was working on this illustration too! I was multi-tasking. ehe~

  2. and what a lovely illustration it has turned out to be! for me it was really interesting to find out more about Marie Antoinette...I've read about her and saw one documentary about her where they explained how she was very lonely at the court.

    1. hello! thank you very much! :") Marie Antoinette is such a darling even if she felt a bit lonely (i think). I guess it's because she got married to King Louis XVI at a very young age and not to mention that it was arranged. Also, I guess it's because she was originally from Austria and not from France and I think these things affected her emotionally? I don't know. hehe. But I still love her so much despite all the deficits. She's only human, right? :))) anyway, may i know about this documentary? can you remember the title? I am very curious! :D

    2. oh, I wish I could remember the title, but it was on TV so I didn't paid much attention...if it helps they also talked about French revolution and about how the initiators of the revolution tried to make her look much more spoiled than she really was and ever made false bills so it looks like she was spending more money than she actually was. It may sound silly to us now, but for the revolution to start such little details were important. Nothing is ever black and white, I think that was the message of that documentary. I do agree that she was probably lonely because she was married at such a young age....and watching that documentary made me really feel bad for her and understand how misrepresented in history someone can be. I think she was probably just a sweet person caught at the wrong place at the wrong time.

    1. Hello Jade! I'm so jealous 'cause you went to Paris! :( haha. but anyway, I agree with you! We watched a documentary about her and France and all the Louis-es in the royalty. hehe. The movie only showed Marie Antoinette's "nice side" and they did not really show Marie Antoinette losing her morals. They made her so lovable. Truth be told, I was kind of expecting her being executed and beheaded by the end of the movie but nothing. :( But still, I love Marie Antoinette as a person (which is weird because we really haven't met, you know what I mean? haha!) and the movie is still wonderful. :))

  11. I wouldn't say that I want to be Marie Antoinette--- after all, she was beheaded!--- But I totally appreciate your historic royals fascination! And your depiction is great!

    1. haha! i understand. i don't like that she was beheaded either but my fascination towards Marie Antoinette is more on the extravagant lifestyle. :) Anyway, thank you so much dear! I'm glad you find my illustration interesting. :D have a happy week!~
