This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Jean-Marc Nattier was born in Paris, France in 1685, the son of a painter, his mother, miniaturist Marie Courtois, and the younger brother of a painter.  Under the protection of Louis XIV, he began to make drawings of the Rubens Gallery of the Luxembourg. Offered a brilliant position in Rome, he preferred to remain in Paris, but in 1715 he was summoned to Amsterdam where he painted the Czar and Czarina of Russia, as well as Peter the Great.  They wanted to take him to their country, but again he insisted that his place was in Paris.  In 1734 he became painter to the Chevalier d'Orleans.  Having lost his fortune through speculation, he produced only portraits, instead of the historical works that had much engaged him previously.   He died in 1766.

Written and submitted by Jean Ershler Schatz, artist and researcher from Laguna Woods, California.
