Marie-Antoinette’s wardrobe with the fabrics, shoes and hairstyles, the laces and ribbons… are as much part of the heritage left by the queen as the sumptuous wall hangings in her residences at the Palace of Versailles and Petit Trianon.
This Marie-Antoinette embroidery evokes the Queen’s garments, the famous « À La Rose » portrait painted by her friend Élisabeth Vigée-Lebrun and the places the sovereign left her mark at the Palace of Versailles.
In the first part, you discovered the wall hangings in the Private Apartments, the equestrian statue of Louis XIV and the silhouette of the Palace. Here is the Hall of Mirrors, the Queen’s Bedchamber and the kings and queens who lived in Versailles.
This embroidery evoking the Palace of Versailles is the sixth in our Museums and Heritage Collection. Treat yourself to the Hall of Mirrors, the Private Apartments and the treasures of the Palace in cross stitch.
