Pierre Narcisse Guerin was a French Neoclassical painter. He has been called one of the most successful French painters of his period by some art historians, and was a student of David.
Guerin won the Prix de Rome in 1797, and was later named the director of the French Academy in Rome in 1822. He was a teacher of many great French artists of a younger generation, including Gericault and Delacroix, and has been credited as being one of the artists to help contribute towards the transition from the Neoclassical style of painting to Romanticism.
