*Rococo Revisited
Élisabeth Vigée-Lebrun (1755–1842) 
Marie-Antoinette in a Muslin dress
 (1783)
 The portrait caused a scandal when it was exhibited at the Salon de Paris. The fact that the queen of France dressed as a maid provoked indignant reactions. Some argued she was conspiring with her brother to ruin the markets of Lyon silk manufacturers and  linen in Brussels. As a precaution, the portrait was taken away. “(Evelyn Lever, Marie Antoinette - The Last Queen, Milan, 2007)
