about this artwork:
‘entering the garden’ is a fine example of theodore’s work with bright and bold colours portraying life at the indulgent court of versailles under louis the xvi and marie antoinette.
an aristocratic figure with characteristic “pouf”, a hair style made popular by marie antoinette, is enjoying herself at peace with nature. this work brings a sense of calm that comes from collecting flowers in a garden, but has undertones of the tumult which would come with the french revolution.
