Nadine Le Prince Born in Paris, she is the descendant of a long line of artists dating back to the sixteenth century. Her most renowed ancestor, Jean-Baptiste Le Prince, lived in the eighteenth century; he was a friend of Diderot’s and painter for the Russian Court.
As a child she showed an outstanding gift for drawing and practised it passionately. At a very early age, she turned to painting still lifes and portraits of relatives and friends in oils. She was only seventeen when she first took part in an exhibition and was still a teenager when she joined the "Painters of Reality". Nadine Le Prince
The way she scrutinizes nature and translates light reveals how truly she admires the seventeenth century painting, wich she updates with subjects chosen and composed in a new spirit.
