Biography   Philip Mercier

Philip Mercier was born in Berlin to French Hugenot parents.  Mercier studied in Germany under Antoine Pesne, who was the First Painter to the King and an avid follower of the painter of fêtes galantes, Antoine Watteau.

Following a sojourn through Italy and France, Mercier arrived in London around 1716, where he settled permanently.  A successful portraitist, genre painter and printmaker, Mercier became the protégé of Frederick, Prince of Wales.  He settled in York in 1739 and remained there for the next twelve years, painting portraits of the local gentry and making fancy pictures often inspired by the works of Chardin.
