Post Antoine's Childhood Sketches
Does anyone have or know where I can get pictures of Marie Antoinette's childhood sketches. I know it was exhibited at the Grand Palais awhile ago along with other things that related to her childhood. I'm dying to see her sketches!

I thinks she was only ten years old when she drew that.

She's good, I wonder if there is anymore. I drew a portrait of my own father when I was 15, my dad lost it though when we moved. It was in a box with some of my art supplies and some kids in the neighborhood stole it. RASCALS!!!! I'll probably draw another picture for him again, since he liked it alot. I'll post it here too!

I wish we could see more of her drawings! She's amazing! Though I wonder, why did she choose to sketch her father of all her family members, was she the favorite of Francis Stephen I ?

I do not think that I ever seen any more sketches. Perhaps none survive. I'm not sure if Antoine was his favourite, I flicked through the index to Fraser's 'The Journey' but could find no reference to it. Perhaps someone else knows?

I don't think her father had a favourite in particular. He was loving with his children, as far as I know, and MA had a good relationship with him, but I don't think there was a preference for her. She was a young child when he died, so we can imagine he was particularly tender with her. The only thing I know is that, while he was leaving for the journey during which he would die, he suddenly felt the need to go back and hug little Antoine. That was the last time she saw her father alive.
