More about this artwork
Four years after her marriage to Charles-Guillaume Le Normant d'Etioles in 1745, Jeanne-Antoinette Poisson became the mistress of Louis XV. Owing to her intellectual propensity, which impressed the king, she soon attained an elevated position at court: the climax of which was her being named on February 7, 1756 as the queen's lady-in-waiting (dame du palais). To commemorate the occasion a combination private and official portrait was painted by Boucher.
