The French painter Boucher was not very enthusiastically painted portraits. However, he loved to paint an image of his patroness, the favorite of Louis XV - the Marquis de Pompadour.

He began his work with her in 1748. Since 1752, Boucher began to live and work in the Louvre (the Marquise de Pompadour herself took care of this). Despite being the king’s mistress for only 5 years, she continued to be special with great influence and connections in France until the death of King Louis XV. This was a woman with opposite qualities: she was smart, diplomatic, educated, possessed cynicism, was tyrannical

Boucher pleased her, depicting the marquise on all his canvases with the face of a 20-year-old girl.

Her portraits are the work of a French artist, which can be safely shown to children under 16 years of age. All other works of the painter Boucher are slightly frivolous - he liked to portray naked girls and boys, to paint scenes with an erotic character.

The painting “Portrait of the Marquise de Pompadour” is her last portrait. For some time, a picture with her portrait was located in Versailles. After the death of the Marquise de Pompadour, the painting went to her brother.

The portrait depicts a smart, educated, with a delicate taste of a young woman. Such was seen and tried to portray in all portraits with her artist Boucher. The marquise herself admitted that he does not write it as it really is. The portrait was painted with all the features of a traditional ceremonial portrait preserved.

The canvas is painted in oil on canvas in 1759. The size of the picture is 130x162 cm.
