A very famous one by Vigee-le-Brun:

With her children. The little cot is empty because Marie's last child, Princess Sophie, died before the painting was finished.

In the movie 'Marie Antoinette' from 1938 with Norma Shearer and Tryone Power and more you can see, that she looks like the drawing that Lisa posted.
But i have a question, why did she wore a little hat? Her head will be well you know...cut off. So why?

The bonnet Marie-Antoinette wore to her execution on October 16, 1793, was taken off just before she was put under the guiotillne (I'm never sure how to spell that word! ???). I don't know why she wore a bonnet to her execution.... she was only 38 or so when she died.

I've never seen that painting of MA at the piano, Grand Duke. Is it a very famous one or no?

Women often wore small caps of fabric or lace at this time...a last bit of femine finery for the dear,doomed queen.....

Axel Fersen, planned and financed the ill fated flight to Varennes.   He was a Swedish Count, and minister to the King, I believe he rose highly in the Swedish King, to Grand Marshal of the Kingdom.  He also never forgot 16 Oct 1789.  He writes about it in his diary each passing year, undoubtedly Marie Antoinette was the love of his life.

On the sudden death of the heir apparent he was mistakenly believed to have poisoned him, and at his funeral on the 20 June 1810, Fersen was attacked by a mob and beaten to death.  The heir was not poisoned, and died of an apoplectic attack.  He never recovered the funds promised him from helping the King & Queen
escape France, however he did see Madame Royale in Vienna once if not twice, but the Hapsburgs did not want him near the Princess.

maybe everyone knows about this but i thought it was cute and wanted to mention it:

when mozart was 6 and was taken to the maria theresa court to play, he played so well that maria theresa was impressed and congratulated him and asked what he wanted (you know, as a reward)... he said 'to marry her!' and pointed to marie antoinette :D
'loving might be a mistake, but it's worth making'
