J.M. Nattier (d'apres) Wall Art

J.M. Nattier (d'apres) (March 1685 – November 1766) was born in Paris. He was the son of Marie Courtois, a miniaturist and Mark Nattier, a portrait painter. Since childhood, Nattier aspired to be a history painter. He is noted for his portrait of the ladies of the court of King Louis XV. Nattier's charming and graceful portraits of court ladies were very fashionable, partly because he could retain the likeness of a sitter while also beautifying her. He received his first instruction from his uncle, Jean Jouvenet and also from his father. In 1703, he joined the Royal Academy where he made a series of drawings of the Marie de Medicis painting cycle.

The 1710 publication of engravings based on these drawings made him very famous. Though he had taken the first prize at the Paris Academy at the age of fifteen, he refused to proceed to the French Academy in Rome. He had applied himself to copying pictures at the Luxembourg Gallery. In 1715 Nattier went to Amsterdam and painted pictures of Empress Catherine and of the tsar, but declined an offer to go to Russia. Between 1715 and 1720, Nattier devoted himself to compositions like Petrification of Phineus and his Companions" and the “Battle of Pultawa,” which he painted for Peter the Great, and led to his election to the Academy. Many of his pictures are in the public collections of France and can also be found with many private and public collectors all over the world.
