Anton Raphael Mengs, Marie-Louise de Parma as a Bride. 1765, oil on canvas. Museo del Prado.
Here is Marie-Louise de Parma, in her splendid wedding gown, at age 13! Granddaughter of Louis XV, she married her cousin, Charles IV of Spain in 1765. Her wedding gown is light and layered, with soft pinks, floral greens and ivory. Diamonds and pearls mix to showcase her status, and she wears a bracelet with a miniature portrait of her betrothed on it.
