I meant a sketch showing the head of the queen, Chou, just her head... We are not sure it was made by David.

Is this authentic ?

This shows the head of a young woman, anyway...

I thought about this one :wink:

But for this sketch too we're not sure that it's david the author... :?

the woman on the sketch that you show us seems younger indeed.

Do you have the Marie Antoinette pic which Fersen draw? I saw it yesterday and it was very beautiful.

I would love to see the Fersen drawing.
As for the decapited head, it looks young...but also very similar to the profile David gave Antoinette in his drawing of her sitting in the cart.
Both works seem to insist on giving the victim a "disdainful" expression. And both drawings are rather simplistic if you compare them to his other works, essentially the Marat painting.

I can't scan it for you, but if I found it, I'll inform you :)

I found this picture purporting to be of Antoinette at ladyreading.net today which I had never seen before. Is this really her?

Yes, I think it's her...
But it's not one of the most famous portraits

It looks like her *face* but it is very unusual. If this is her, she looks very beautiful.

Wow, she look elegant and beguiling. She is among one of most beautiful woman in the world. If would be living today than she would be more in tune to be a fashion model. She is amazing!

I'm afraid she was far too podgy to be a fashion model ! :lol:

Do you have any idea who the artist may have been for the state portrait?
