A Day with Marie Antoinette
Featuring personal correspondence, lavish illustrations, and a wealth of unpublished subject material, this handsome slipcased volume reveals an intimate portrait of Marie Antoinette, her personal collections, and Versailles. Marie Antoinette was once a mirror of her time. Never has a queen been so passionately admired and adulated, then hunted, vilified, and defamed. Spanning her tragically brief yet passionate life—from the young queen playing a shepherdess on stage, unaware of the turmoil within the capital, to France’s guillotined “martyr queen”—the creator demystifies the legend, unveiling the girl at the back of the queen, and the wife and mother at the back of the sovereign.
Readers will revel in the palatial luxury of the queen’s Versailles by tracing Marie Antoinette’s footsteps throughout the royal place of dwelling, in addition to discovering her voice through rare letters and encountering little-known works in her private art collection.
