Victoire Louise Marie Thérèse de France (Madame Victoire) by Adélaïde Labille-Guiard, 1788
Stunning purple! What a delicious robe à la française. I also just realized that there is a fleur de lis in the upper left corner, and I can’t tell if that is painted on or if it was somehow added by someone on the internet.. I’ve never seen a symbol like that in the corner of a portrait, but it would make sense as the fleur de lis is the symbol of the ancien régime (and Mdm Victoire is the daughter of King Louis XV)!
