Jean-Urbain Guérin was a French draughtsman and miniaturist who was born in Paris on 26 May 1760 and died on 24 January 1836. He was known for his ability to create detailed drawings and miniatures, especially portraits. Guérin was a pupil of Jacques-Louis David, a prominent neoclassical painter, who greatly influenced his style. He gained recognition for his delicate and precise works, often depicting members of the French aristocracy and notable figures of his time. Guérin's works are characterised by their meticulous attention to detail and refined technique, which earned him a reputation as one of the leading miniaturists of his time. He was highly esteemed by his contemporaries and received commissions from various prominent figures, including members of the French royal family. Guérin's contributions to the art of miniature painting are significant and his works are held in several prestigious collections and museums around the world, demonstrating his enduring legacy in the field of 18th and 19th century French art.
