Embroidery kit in cross stitch - Marie Antoinette's portrait - Museum and Heritage Collection

Cushion inspired by the portrait of Queen Marie-Antoinette by Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun. This portrait, Marie-Antoinette à la rose, is probably one of the most common images of the sovereign. It is displayed at the Petit Trianon. She is wearing a blue satin French-style dress with a striped ribbon. The neck line and sleeves are edged with fine lace. Look at the imposing feathered hat. It is not easy to interpret such a portrait in cross-stitch with the multiple nuances. Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun, official painter of the Queen with over 20 portraits to her same said of her model: “… her skin was so transparent it would hold no shadow. Thus I could not capture the effect as I wished: there were no colours to paint this freshness, these fine tones which belonged only to this charming person and which I never found on another woman.”
This chart is taken from our spectacular pattern dedicated to Marie-Antoinette in the Museums and Heritage collection.
Size of motif: 144 stitches wide by 196 stitches high. When embroidered on 12 count (per cm) linen, the finished project measures 24 x 32.7cm. Size of finished cushion: 26 x 34.7cm.
