  • Marie Leszczynska (1703-68), daughter of Stanislaus Leszczynski, Duke of Lorraine and former King of Poland, married King Louis XV of France in 1725 when he was fifteen. They had ten children together. This miniature is based on a famous portrait of the Queen by Jean-Marc Nattier painted in 1748, today in the Châteaux de Versailles. The present artist portrayed the Queen in bust rather than three-quarter length. Many painted copies of Nattier's iconic portrait are known, including a reduced version at the Wallace Collection (P437).
