In addition to the dozens of portraits of Marie herself, we saw many paintings of her family, the royal family of Austria, from when she was a child. There were drawings and portraits done from the celebrations when she was wed to Louis XVI, not to mention furniture, tableware, and jewelry that survived the revolution. There were also portraits of the king, their children, and other prominent members of the royal court.
seen from the Tuileries.
The exhibit ended in a dark room that contained mostly press items from the revolution, letters that Marie wrote while being held prisoner in the Conciergerie, and a few drawings and artifacts from her trial. She was executed about two weeks before her thirty-eighth birthday.
We spent about an hour wandering around the exhibit, which wasn't too big -- really, how many portraits of Marie Antoinette can one look at? -- before making our way back to the apartment to get ready for dinner that evening.
