Major smugness at knowing who this was before I looked at the name. Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun, ‘Self portrait in a straw hat’, 1782. This particular painting was scandalous for its time because her lips were parted and she is showing her teeth! She was a radical, challenging many ideas and rules of the time - wanting to capture naturalism, energy, beauty and maternalism. One of the reasons she wanted to paint herself and her daughter, Julie, was to portray an image of a successful woman with a career combined with being a mother. In fact according to many she was the most radical painter of the period. Not least for being a successful 18th century female painter which was made almost impossible. She challenged the idea that the role of the woman when it came to child-rearing were purely domestic. She reasoned that the rights of man must logically include the rights of women.

Vigée-Le Brun was Marie Antoinette’s favoured portraitist. This helped her gain entry into the Royal Academy in 1783.

Grandeur. History. Wealth beyond your wildest dreams.💎 A glimpse into the place where Louis XIV and Queen Marie Antoinette lived! 👑 But don't let the glamour blind you. Remember, this was a place that saw the birth of a revolution too. 😯 #versailles #travelgram #frenchrevolution #france #history #passionpassport #beautifuldestinations

Fun fact: After his death, Jean-Paul Marat basically got treated like a god by the Jacobins. Even his bathtub was considered a religious idol.
----------------------------------
Some experimental thing that I did since I haven't really done "aesthetic" art in 25,000 years. I'm pretty happy with how this turned out though!

The window from Marie Antoinette’s prison cell -
Her death order, place where she was beheaded, her chamber in palace of Versailles ... so many years of reading, obsessing over her life... infamous but exceedingly intriguing ... This moment meant so much to me ...

今日はマチネ1回公演❗️💪✨ 写真はパレロワイヤル庭園🌿
1789年当時は革命家や娼婦のたまり場で、政治議論がされていた場所。
その熱量はすごいものだったんじゃないかなと🧐

さて❗️今日も熱い気持ちで頑張ります✨🇫🇷 #1789バスティーユの恋人たち #1789lesamantsdelabastille

🐍💂🏾‍♂️🌍🥁🇫🇷 In 1989, Florida A&M University's Marching 100 (@themarching100) performed in France's 200th Bastille Day Parade. The Parade celebrated 200 years since the mark of the French Revolution and FAMU was the ONLY representative of the United States of America.

France's government sponsored the trip and even gave FAMU the last position in the parade.

Rattlers been striking.
Rattlers stay striking.

In love with my french revolutioner pin. Thank you @saint.rouge for the great work.

I've had to put my #Rupunzel project to the side for now cause I accidently spilled gold paint all over the underskirt. So I've started instead this Hetalia France cosplay for my sister's history class. It's a little too long for her short legs but it's gonna look great😆😅😅😆😂 #hetalia #france #hetaliafrance #historyproject #history #frenchy #frenchrevolution #cosplay #sewing #fanartcosplay #bonnefoyfrancis #francisbonnefoy #francisbonnefoycosplay #hetaliacosplay #honhonhon #blue #militarycosplay #anime #animecosplay #jacket #1700s #1700scosplay #beautifulworld #axispowershetalia #hetaliacosplay #hetaliacosplayer #hetaliafrancecosplay

[Tsarina in Revolutionary #France] Against the cold in early June (2017), I left Charles de Gaulle, and took the metro to Place de la Nation. On the metro map of #Paris, there was one station named Stalingrad, which was absurd. My host in Dijon guessed it was because of the active communist movements in Paris. ---
The Cemetery of #Picpus was the first point I aimed at after I set foot in France, or Europe. It is a mass graveyard of 1306 guillotined victims in the Reign of Terror (see the plaque); they were randomly disposed in the dumping ground (‘fosse commune’) before being transported through this door. I stumbled into the house where the Louis XIV was under house arrest and a man walked down the stairs. ---
‘Vous êtes Louis XIV?’ I asked him, horrified.
---
‘I am glad he is not here so far I live here.’ He chuckled and replied in English. ---
A notable political figure buried here is General Lafayette, a #French nobleman who had spent most of his life fighting along General #Washington in the #American Revolution. He signified the brotherhood of France and America in the world revolutions against the hostile European monarchies. With Thomas Jefferson, he wrote the Declaration of the Rights of Men and Citizens (1789) (‘Déclaration des Droits de L’homme et du Citoyen’), which stipulated the equal political rights and freedom of individual beings. ---
The past is in the past: it is meaningless if we cannot translate it into progress of our future for humanity. It begs the question if we ask for a disruptive reform without observing history, where the answers have been given. So my question is, is it possible to skip the bloodshed after a new revolution? The revolutionary leaders, threatened by insecurity or exhausted in previous struggles, carried out mass killings to consolidate their power. What if they let the new generations to succeed the fruits of the revolution, rather than clinging onto their power themselves?
