Francois Hubert Douais art prints and posters

This superb French portrait painter was born in 1727 and studied under his father and François Boucher, among others.

He followed in his father's tradition of painting actresses and became a serious rival to the artist, Nattier. He worked for Madame Du Barry and the Royal Family, and showed a particular flair in painting children.

In 1771, scandal loomed as his large semi-nude portrait of Madame Du Barry as a muse had to be withdrawn from the Paris Salon.
