The Vigée-Lebrun National Museum (not CC-free)

📷  See more pictures

Hi ♥︎ I’m happy to finally share this museum that I’ve started… more than one year ago. At that time I just started my Simblr, never shared a lot, and had no idea that some people would actually be interested by it. I was totally carefree and unaware, so I used A LOT of CC, and I’m sorry about that ahah. I’ve decided to enjoy my game and fantastic simmers’ content, so I kept it that way, but I plan to make a CC-free version later (+ maybe “CC soft” version ?)

  • Lot type : Museum
  • Lot size : 50x50
  • The lot features : an historical section (Celtic era, ancient Egypt, piracy), a fine arts section (sculptures and paintings from 16th to 19th), a gifts shop, a little café, a conference room, an art workshop (adults and kids). 
  • Packs additional info : The more important packs are Get to Work, Get Together, and Spa Day. You lose just a couple of items if you don’t own the others.
  • There’s a little room on the ground floor that I haven’t furnished, it’s up to you to decide how it can be used !

As I said, it’s pretty CC heavy but don’t panic ! Some CC are less important than others, and I’ve detailed everything in the CC list. If you don’t want to download too much, as long as you have the “highly recommended” CC, feel free to create your own exhibit, and replace the CC I used with other content !

Special thanks to all of you for your sweet messages, and @martinessimblr for having tested the lot :) ♥︎

Women Artists of the 18th Century [2/11] - Louise Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun

Born in Paris in 1755, Madame Lebrun became a member of the Académie de Saint Luc aged nineteen. She is famed for her numerous portraits of Marie Antoinette and the French royal family, including the infamous ’La reine en gaulle’ portrait in 1783. After the French Revolution she worked in Italy, Austria and Russia painting nobility and royalty.

After the death of her beloved son Louis Joseph, Marie Antoinette could no longer bear the sight of this family portrait by Elisabeth Vigee-Lebrun, which the queen passed every morning on her way to mass. She ordered the painting to be taken down, but as Vigee-Lebrun relates, “with her usual consideration,” Marie Antoinette made sure to inform the artist of the removal–and the reason why she had it taken down.
