Kitty Fisher (died 1767) was a prominent British courtesan. Her celebrity was boosted by the attention that Sir Joshua Reynolds and other artists paid her. By emphasizing Fisher's beauty, audacity, and charm, portraits promoted her reputation, and prompted spectators to view her with redoubled awe. She is immortalized in the nursery rhyme, Lucy Locket.
