Louis-Simon Boizot (1743–1809) sculpted this marble bust of Marie Antoinette in 1781.  It was commissioned by the Ministère des Affaires and is now owned by the Louvre.

The artist did not ignore Marie Antoinette's "dropped lip," a characteristic she shared with other members of the Hapsburg (Habsburg) family.
