Nattier's graceful and charming portraits of court ladies in this mode were very fashionable, partly because he could beautify a sitter while also retaining her likeness. Many of his pictures are in the public collections of France. "He distinguished himself as a portrait painter, in which capacity he was much employed" (Bryan, 7).
