Context: The Spanish Princess Marie-Thérèse married the eldest son of king Louis XV in 1745 but died in childbirth just over a year later. As was normal for important members of the royal family, she was given two lavish funerals, one at the Church of St. Denis, and the one shown in this drawing, at Nôtre Dame in Paris.Cochin's drawing shows how the interior of this gothic building was completely transformed intoa theatrical space in the rococo style of decoration. The focus of the image is the elaborate arched structure in the center, a baldequin, which supports the princess's coffin.
