The Queen and her Heir

Marie Leszczynska & le dauphin

Marie Leszczynska was painted with her son the Dauphin Louis in 1730 by Alexis-Simon Belle. The painting is littered with royal symbols. The flowing ermine, the blue sash and the three crowned fleur-de-lis all points to the status of the mother and child.
