Engraving of Jean-Baptiste Oudry by Marie–Marguerite Oudry

Marie–Marguerite Oudry, née Froissé (1688–1780) was a French engraver and painter.

Born in Paris, Oudry studied with Jean-Baptiste Oudry, whom she married in 1709.[1] The couple would have thirteen children, only five of whom, two sons and three daughters, were still alive at the time of her death.[2] Their daughter married the painter Antoine Boizot. Marie–Marguerite Oudry produced engravings after her husband's paintings; she also produced portraits in pastel of him and of one of their sons.[1] She died of an illness in her Paris home.[3]
