Act of Kindness

 The Dauphine Marie-Antoinette consoles the wife and children of a peasant who was wounded by a deer (1773). The artist is Jean-Michel Moreau the Younger. This was seen as extraordinary act of condescension of the part of the future Queen of France, although I have no doubt that from her point  of view it was the only decent thing to do. Share
