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.
