Monsieur de Pompadour

Jean-Antoine Poisson, Marquis de Pompadour, was the consort of Queen Louise XIV of France from 1745 to 1750. Beautiful and refined, he was accomplished in dancing, singing, painting and other charming masculine arts. The Queen spotted him at a masked ball and at once took him for her lover.

Digital painting, mostly after François Boucher.
