Madame Marie-Louise-Therese-Victoire De France L'Eau, Late 19th Century Restrike
J.M. Nattier (1685-1766) (after)
R. Gaillard (c.1719-1790) (engraver)

Marie-Louise-Therese-Victoire de France (1733-1799), daughter of Louis XV, is depicted as the personifcation of water, seated near a riverbank in a flowing blue gown, her arm resting on an elaborately chaise. Marie-Louise-Therese-Victoire was born at Versailles, one of seven children of King Louis XV and his wife Maria Leszczynska, daughter of the King of Poland. A gifted musician, she participated in musical salons organized by her older sister. The sisters were forced to flee Paris when their nephew, Louis XVI, was deposed during the French Revolution.

Painter and pastel artist Jean-Marc Nattier was a Rococo painter belonging to a French family of painters and engravers. He established a reputation at a young age and led a successful enough career producing fashionable portraits of the royal family and aristocrats in Paris that he turned down offers of positions at the Académie de France in Rome and at the Russian court of Peter the Great. His portraits are in major museums all over the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Louvre, Versailles, and the Hermitage in Russia.

Réné Galliard (also known as Robert) was a French printmaker.
