Marie Leszczyńska, the Queen of France, was known for her cultural sophistication and her keen interest in various creative fields, including painting. In her private apartment, she had a room set up as a studio where she practiced painting. Her primary painting instructor was Étienne Jeaurat, a French painter renowned for his vibrant street scenes. Jeaurat, born on February 9, 1699, in Vermenton, and passing away on December 14, 1789, in Versailles, was particularly famous for his lively depictions of Parisian life​​​​.

Marie Leszczyńska, born on June 23, 1703, in Trzebnica, Poland, became the Queen of France in a somewhat unexpected turn of events. She was the daughter of the dethroned King of Poland, Stanislas I Leszczyński. Despite her initial remote prospects for a royal marriage, she eventually married Louis XV of France in 1725. As Queen, she embraced her royal duties and gave birth to ten children. In her private life, she led a simple existence, focusing on her family, friends, and her interests in arts and charity. She was an avid practitioner of painting, honing her skills under the guidance of Étienne Jeaurat. Jeaurat, known as the “French Teniers,” was renowned for his historical, mythological works, portraits, still lifes, and particularly his genre paintings. His style was influenced by artists like Chardin and David Teniers the Younger. Some of his notable works include lively street scenes in Paris and a series depicting scenes from La Fontaine’s fables​​​​.

The Queen’s collaboration with Jeaurat for fifteen years as her “colourist” allowed her to develop her painting skills. Jeaurat not only guided her in the technical aspects of painting but also helped her in creating versions of the works of her favorite artists.
