ART
Madame de Pompadour may have once been a commoner, but after she became chief mistress to King Louis XV she gained influence over the French court and beyond. Parisians can see her lasting legacy in such structures as the Petit Trianon. She helped plan with her brother and art minister to the court Marquis de Marigny. She was also a prolific art patron with a taste for the rococo, and her commissions now can be seen in “La Volupté du Goût: French Painting in the Age of Madame de Pompadour,” at Oregon’s Portland Art Museum. It’s the only Stateside stop for the 54 sumptuous portraits and landscapes from Pompadour-era artists like François Boucher, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Noel Coypel and Jean-Baptiste Greuze.
