The Queen and her Children

Marie Antoinette with her children   Princess Marie Therese Charlotte of France and Dauphin Louis Joseph of France, by Adolf Ulrik Wertmuller, 1785.  The queen strolls trough the gardens at her beloved Petite Trianon clutching the wrist of the four year old dauphin.

A serene-looking Marie Antoinette walks with her two children Marie Thérèse and the Dauphin Louis Joseph. In the background you can just see the Temple of Love on the grounds of her Petit Trianon. For once Marie Antoinette had chosen to go with a different painter than Madame Vigée Le Brun and this time Adolf Ulrik Wertmuller who painted the portrait in 1785.
