All the more there was another painter called Watteau de Lille, Antoine's nephew, who also produced works in his style. In addition, a painter called Charles André Tremblin painted early fakes sold as by Watteau, Pater and Lancret, which were seized in 1747.
De Troy, Charles Coypel and Gabriel de Saint-Aubin did not really produce faithful copies after Watteau but included elements from his paintings in their works.
Nattier also had many followers such as B. Nonnotte, N. Dupont, F.L Marteau,
J. Valade, E. Jeaurat, Charles Natoire, Marianne Loir, J. B Le Prince, J. F Lagrenée, M. van Loo or J.F Delyen.
Several painters worked for the Versailles palace to produce works after studies by Nattier who also had F. H Drouais as one of his imitators.
François Boucher first copied the works of his master Lemoyne and then had many followers such as his own wife, who produced miniatures after his paintings, his son-in-law P. A Beaudoin, J. B Deshays de Colleville, , Challe, Charlier,
Le Mettay, J. F Clermont, N. Hallé, J. B Huet, M. Jacques, L. Pariseau,
J. B Le Prince, J. E Listard, F.M Queverdo, F. Guillaume, Oudry, Ozanne, Pierre Lelie, Pillement, L. D Soldini, Caresme, Ch. Eisen, Natoire, C. V Loo, Taraval,
A. Lucas, J.B Bénard and even Hubert Robert.
Today, many modern faked Bouchet drawings produced on 18th Century sheets of paper have been flooding the art market.
Chardin, who produced many replicas of his works during his career, had no pupil except his son but was much copied notably by Anne Valayer-Coster, a certain Miss Harrison, Etienne Jeaurat, Lépicié or Aved.
Louis Tocqué, a pupil of Nattier, copied his master and Chardin while certain paintings by Louis Aubert were mistaken with works produced by the latter.
Many forgers sold some portraits by J. B Le Prince, Bachelier, Roland de la Porte, G. Voiriot, A. Labille-Guiard and F. Duparc as well as works by Chardin.
For instance, Michel-Honoré Bounieu was also an artist whose style closely resembled that of Chardin.
