Memoirs of Madame Vigee-Lebrun
Transcript of Memoirs of Madame Vigee-Lebrun
By: Jasmine Trejo
"'No, no! Do not go!' exclaimed the Queen. 'I do not want you to have made your journey for nothing!'"
"I opened my paint-box so excitedly that I spilled my brushes on the floor. I stooped down to pick them up. 'Never mind, never mind,' said the Queen, and, for aught i could say, she insisted on gathering them all up herself."
"I once saw her make her six-year-old daughter dine with a little peasant girl and attend to her wants. The Queen saw to it that the little visitor was served first, saying to her daughter, 'You must do the honors.'"
"During the first sitting I had with her Majesty after this I took the liberty of mentioning the impression she had made upon me,...she answered in a jesting tone, 'If I were not Queen they would say I looked insolent, would they not?'"
"...I busied myself with my picture, to which I attached great importance..." and "At last I sent my picture, but I could not muster up the courage to follow it and find out...so afraid was I that it would be badly receive by the public"
"'The lady ought to take a mule; to climb up on foot is too fatiguing.' I answered that I was a work-man and quiet accustomed to walking"
There is a seventy-two year difference
The criticism is similar although in the paintings is was what the Queen wore and in Tenant Helen is judged for being seen with Mr. Lawrence
They both make a living for their child and themselves by painting
Both Helen and Madam Lebrun are great painters with the exception that one is recognized and the other is not
The Rain of Terror happens in Madam Lebrun's time and there is not much terror in Tenant
Painting is a main part of Leburn's life.
She made a living off of these paintings.
Middle class women in France were not made to be hard workers in this time frame.
Leburn became popular with the higher class because of her paintings.
Women were expected to not be hard workers and to just have a calm life.
The French Revolution allowed women to show their authority and power. Women would stand up for themselves against Louis XVI.
