Treasures of the Court / Madame de Pompadour (174564)

Covering 500 years, 38 patrons and several continents, this course is an examination of audacious acts of patronage and how they resulted in some of the finest art collections in the world.


Madame de Pompadour (1745–64)

As Official Mistress to Louis XV, Madame de Pompadour became one of the major patrons of her age, commissioning some of France's best artists including Boucher, van der Loo, and Drouais. Constantly re-positioning herself in relation to Queen Marie Leszczynska of France, art became both her seduction strategy and a political tool at the royal court.
