Du Barry :. by RafkinsWarning Du Barry :. by RafkinsWarning
I figured that since I made a wallpaper of Madame de Pompadour it is only fair that I make a wallpaper of Madame du Barry.

Jeanne Bécu was the last maîtresse-en-titre (chief mistress) of King Louis XV of France. She, along with Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, fell victim to the Reign of Terror during the French Revolution losing her head to the guillotine at the age of 50.

Original portrait of Madame du Barry can be viewed here: [link]

Texture used: :iconcaptainredd-stock:

Made in Photoshop CS3.

Your color choice is lovely. I like that this is such a cool piece in contrast to the warmer original. The subtly of the background is great as well. The icons would show up well against the darker colors, while the flowers and text evokes the feel of the romantic period. I love this.
