What They Wore: a Wilde one, a Queen & a Dauphin


Fashion is what one Wears. 
What is Unfashionable is What others wear. 
Oscar Wilde

Maria Theresa wife of Louis XIV, with her son, Dauphin Louis of France by Pierre Mignardca


  1. Have been reading up and looking at Mignard pictures since viewing this. Fascinating. So accomplished on the various non-human surfaces. Such odd and insensitive portraiture. Thanks for this. Curtis
