EDITORS COMMENTS
Speculator at the Palais Royal: A Fashionable Woman of the Era of Marie Antoinette This copperplate etching, created by Auguste Etienne Guillaumot in 1875, depicts a fashionable woman, known as a 'speculator,' at the Palais Royal during the era of Marie Antoinette. The image is derived from an original illustration by François Louis Joseph Watteau, published in the Gallerie des Modes et Costumes Francais between 1778 and 1787. The woman is elegantly dressed in the height of 18th-century fashion. She dons a morning coat and jockey hat, accessories that were popular among the Parisian elite. Her fan, adorned with intricate designs, adds an air of sophistication and mystery. Her hairstyle, a voluminous updo with a red fichu, is a testament to the elaborate coiffures of the time. The redingote she wears is a fashionable garment of the period, featuring a long, fitted bodice and a loose, flowing skirt. The fabric, likely silk or velvet, is richly textured and draped gracefully over her figure. The woman's elegant posture and confident gaze suggest that she is a woman of means and influence. The Palais Royal, a popular gathering place for the Parisian elite, serves as the backdrop for this scene. The architecture of the palace, with its ornate columns and intricate details, adds to the overall sense of opulence and grandeur. This etching offers a glimpse into the fashionable world of the French aristocracy during the era of Marie Antoinette, a time of elegance, decadence, and intrigue. The woman's stylish attire and confident demeanor serve as a reminder of the enduring allure of 18th-century fashion.
