Happy 178th birthday to the most famous Impressionist, Claude Monet. He was born on this day in 1840 in Paris, France. To break up the possible influx of Waterlily paintings on your timeline today, here are two of the artist’s more unique works, both of his frequent subject and first wife, Camille. The first painting is “Camille” or “Woman in a Green Dress” (1866), and shows Monet’s hand at Realism. In his usual style but a darker mood than most of his oeuvre, the second painting is called “Camille Monet on Her Deathbed” (1879). He said to a friend at the time, “I one day found myself looking at my beloved wife's dead face and just systematically noting the colours according to an automatic reflex!”. He later married a woman named Alice, who helped take care of the couple’s two sons. Claude Monet died in 1926 at his home in Giverny, where he maintained and painted his gardens. You can still visit the lovely property today.

Being able to appreciate this magnificent piece of history while holding it on the palm of my hands was a truly treasured moment - Marie Antoinette’s pearl has been sold for more than 36 million USD, 18 times higher than the high estimate! This set a new world record for a natural pearl.
This pearl comes as it is from Queen Marie Antoinette and was inherited by Marie Thérèse de France, Duchess d’Angoulême, Countesse de Marne, then to her niece and adoptive daughter, Louise Marie Thérèse de France, Mademoiselle Duchesse de Parme.

Swipe left to see the painting of Duchess of Parma and her children - she can be seen wearing the pearl on a two strand pearl necklace. Also look at the photograph of the necklace presented in its original form as it was worn by Marie Antoinette. The pearl decorated the front of the necklace and the oval diamond formed the clasp of the three strand pearl necklace (which was also sold!).

J'ai commencé à écrire une brève biographie de Richelieu, et sur chaque page un dessin... Après Richelieu, ce seront Mazarin, les Rois de France à partir de François Ier jusqu'à Louis XIV en 1715 et d'autres personnages méconnus autour des grands...

Congratulations to the winner of this incomparable piece of history.
Watching the bidding live (online) was incredible. A new world record for a pearl sold at auction. Sold for 36,427,000 CHF (hammer price with buyer’s premium). Formerly in the collection of Marie-Antoinette, Queen of France (1755-1793). Set with an oval diamond supporting a diamond bow motif and a slightly baroque drop  shaped natural pearl measuring approximately 15.90 x 18.35 x 25.85mm, hook and hinged back fitting, the pearl and diamond bow motif were suspended from Marie Antoinette’s three strand pearl necklace.

Film Review: Waterloo (1970)

Waterloo is a film of spectacular scale. It may not be the greatest war film, but it is certainly the largest. It is only hampered by poor writing and a far too Anglocentric viewpoint.
The Soviet Union provided nearly 17,000 soldiers as extras, including a full brigade of cavalry. This is where the film excels: scale. Moments like the two cavalry charges are huge spectacles, conveying the power and danger of cavalry as literally thousands of soldiers re-enact the climactic battle of Waterloo.
However, I do find the writing to be rather poor. Additionally, although the Prussians have their say, the Belgians, Dutch, Brunswickers etc. are mostly forgotten in favour of the British.
Overall, Waterloo is an incredible depiction of war in the gunpowder era as it is probably the closest that we'll ever get to really understanding the scale of the Napoleonic Wars.

After World War I, Ettore Bugatti unearthed the Type 13 for the 1920 Grand Prix des Voiturettes at Le Mans. Using six-year-old technology that had been hidden during the war, Ettore lost no time in capitalizing on the renewed interest in racing. In 1921, four of these new models competed in the Italian Grand Prix des Voiturettes near Bresicia, Italy. They came in first, second, third and fourth place and set a new speed record that averaged 72 mph over three hours. After this resounding victory, the Type 13 became known as the Brescia and would continue to dominate early voiturette racing in Europe, winning numerous events and was the foundation for Bugatti in motor racing.

Conciergerie was a former royal palace that turned into a prison during the French Revolution - most famously, Marie Antoinette, was imprisoned here from August 1793 until her execution in October 1793. You can see her cell and chapel dedicated to her, as well as a quick video of all the names prisoned here 😭🇫🇷✨ #parisfrance #conciergerie #frenchhistory #marieantoinette #frenchrevolution #europe #passportrequired #travel #seertheworld #thankful #breathebelievereceieve #kicksat36

Frenchman of the 'Charlemagne' 33rd Waffen-SS Grenadier Division, originally the 'Legion of French Volunteers Against Bolshevism'. He's holding a Sturmgewehr 44. Frenchmen were among the last troops still fighting in defence of central Berlin and the Führerbunker against the Soviet invasion.

This film gives off this really beautiful, rosy pink aesthetic but it’s important to remember who Marie Antoinette really was, so here are some fun facts:
1) She was only 14 years old when she married the future Louis XVI. (Omg, fuck that)
2) It took seven years for the future king and queen to consummate their marriage.
3) Marie Antoinette was a teen idol. When the teenager made her initial appearance in the French capital, a crowd of 50,000 Parisians grew so uncontrollable that at least 30 people were trampled to death in the crush. Um Kendall Jenner who? 💅🏻
4) Marie Antoinette never said “Let them eat cake.” That shit was made up.
5) The trumped-up charges against Marie Antoinette included incest. (Marie Antoinette's eight-year-old son, Louis, was taken from her and brainwashed until he accused her of sexually abusing him. He died of illness and neglect.)
• Apparently her hair had gone white during the revolution, and she defended herself against the incest accusations with infamously great dignity-
“If I did not answer, it is because Nature itself refuses to respond to a similar accusation against a mother. I appeal to all mothers who are!”
• She remained a die-hard, absolutist monarchist to the end.
