S ound design for painting “Court Ladies Bathing in the Eighteen Century” by F.Flameng (1856-1923).

  • “Bathing of Court Ladies” by Francois Flameng

  • “Bathing of Court Ladies” by Francois Flameng

Painting description

Flameng has faithfully represented the architecture in the royal park of Versailles. However, he has added fantasy elements in the pool, such as the fountain issuing from the plinth of the sculptural group The rape of Proserpne. A historical entourage was required in this period to legitimize depiction of the female nude.The sumptuous costumes worn by some of the ladies place the scene in the time of Marie – Antoinette (c. 1770-89)
