While I was searching for the previously posted portraits of Radziwill princesses, I came across these lovely paintings by French artist Louise Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun. Her portraits are later in the eighteenth century than I’ve set the events in “Tangled,” but they give a nice sense of what the European nobility of the era looked like. From left are Anna Pitt, the artist’s daughter, Queen Luise of Prussia, and Russian Countess Catherine Vassilievna Skavronskaia. Had to share them…

In honor of the last installment of my “House of Korona" fanfic, here’s some of the real princesses of the House of Radziwill – the family from which I’ve taken my Queen of Corona. The first (Barbara) and the last (Elisa) basically drove the King of Poland and the Emperor of Germany mad with love. The King of Poland married Barbara over the objections of his mother and the entire government. The German Emperor regretted not marrying Elisa until his dying day.

I started … documenting my life in a sketchbook and turning it into Rapunzel. Cleaning up my house, putting away clothes, separating the dirty from the clean. I’m singing while I’m doing it. That leads to a life-as-art thing, where everything Rapunzel is doing is another opportunity for art.   -CLAIRE KEANE

This collage is of all Rapunzel’s self-portraits in the tower. I love how Claire Keane had Rapunzel transfigure all her ordinary activities into magical moments.

Corona Series No. 5: The village

The directors didn’t just want a row of buildings; they wanted interesting things, and spaces, and nooks that you could go into. You don’t necessarily ever see them, but just the visual idea that something is around the corner or through an archway.   –MAC GEORGE, DESIGNER
