Nicolas de Largilliere



Nicolas de Largilliere

(b Paris, 10 Oct 1656; d Paris, 20 March 1746).

French painter. Following his early training in Antwerp and London, he established himself in Paris, becoming one of the most successful portrait painters of the second half of Louis XIV’s reign. Although Largillierre was patronized by the Court, most of his sitters came from the wealthy middle classes; by the end of his career he had produced (by conservative estimates) some 1500 portraits. In 1734–5 and again in 1738–42 he was Directeur of the Academie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture.
