1846-1847 Princess of Joinville by Franz Xaver Winterhalter (Versailes)

This 1846 portrait of the Duchesse d’Aumale is one of Winterhalter’s most well-known portraits and a model of pre-crinoline evening dress and glamour.

1807 Hortense de Beauharnais with the Prince Royal of Holland by François-Pascal-Simon Gérard (Versailles)

1783 Marie Antoinette holding a rose by Élisabeth-Louise Vigée-Lebrun (Versailles) This 1783 Vigée-Le Brun work may be the most well-known portrait of Marie-Antoinette. It was quickly painted in an attempt to calm the controversy caused by the "muslin portrait." Vigée-Lebrun painted many copies. Elements of the "muslin portrait" are retained - she wears a hat and holds a rose while wearing a bertha with two flounces and a skirt with two flounces.
