Jean-François Garneray (1755-1837) was a French painter known for his marine and naval scenes. He was born in Paris and trained under the renowned marine painter Joseph Vernet. Garneray's works often depicted naval battles, ships and seascapes with great detail and realism. Garneray's career was closely linked to the French Navy, as he served as a naval artist and travelled extensively on board various ships, including those involved in the Napoleonic Wars. His first-hand experience at sea lent authenticity to his depictions of maritime life and naval engagements. In addition to his marine scenes, Garneray also painted portraits and landscapes.
