Art Doll Marie Antoinette Let Them Eat Cake

Did Marie Antoinette really say, "Let them eat cake?" during the revolutionary turmoil of France?

The expression, "Let them eat cake", is the traditional translation to English of the French phrase "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche", supposedly spoken by "a great princess" upon learning that the peasants had no bread. While they are commonly attributed to Queen Marie Antoinette,there is no absolute record of these words ever having been spoken by her. But none the less, in case she did, this version was created for fun!

The famous queen of France was not known for her conservative style of dressing, and this art doll is no exception! Based on a portrait of Marie wearing one of her outlandish hair decorations, I created her wearing a full pink silk gown rows of cream ruffles that accent the front and sleeves. Pink and white tiny roses accent her dress and she has swirls of pale pink lace ribbon festooning the sides and back to complete the dress. I hand styled her enormous hair do that is topped with diamond , roses, and white feathers and I hand painted each detail of her face . The final detail is her silver tray with a slice of cake on top.

Marie stands at approximately 6 1/2 inches including the the top of her skyscraper hair. (16.51 cm).

My art creations are uniquely designed from a combination of clay, wire, paint, and wood and without a pattern.
