Marie-Antoinette teapot,watercolor on Etsy, 5.5" x 7.5"
I was first bowled over by the Bernardaud's windows at Carrousel du Louvre of their Marie-Antoinette commemorative collection.
Bird cup at Bernardaud,watercolor on Etsy,5.5" x 7.5"
Plus the big posters all over Paris drove me to the not-to-be missed exhibit...
I spent last week painting this for Brazil.
I've vowed I will get one of these next trip and study it in person for future research etc.
An exquisite goblet in the same collection...This milky breast-shaped piece was designed especially for La Laiterie de Rambouillet - Marie-Antoinette's dairy, Le hameau at Versailles.And then back again to Bernardaud to look again at this Limoges china...A 16th c Supernanny giving a good wacking with a bouquet of roses. These lush silk roses drove me to seek out SIA. *Note the decorative macarons. The shelf life of these cookies is not long. I wonder who's job it is to eat and replenish these window?A piece montee des macarons.
