You can post images of Portraits of Louis XVI and we can squawk about the portraits as well or any art form that depicts Louis XVI. It would be fabulous if you could keep one picture per post. Merci. :)

Moi Aussi. But I like the first one too, the tan color suits him well, I'm not sure about the lavender though or if it's lavender it looks lavender to me.

Tan? I would've thought it was a slightly cream coloured jacket. Perhaps it is the way the light has been painted towards him.
