"Bonbonnière" with a Regatta Scene


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Portrayed is a regatta at the queen's "hameau," or little village. To escape the formality of the court, Marie Antoinette had the hameau constructed on the grounds of Versailles behind her little palace, the Petit Trianon. It was there that she liked to pretend to lead a peasant's life and to undertake such tasks as making cheese. Today, visitors can still visit the pond, the Marlborough Tower, and some of the farm buildings.
