Jouvenet, Jean Baptiste
Jean Baptiste Jouvenet (zhäN bätēst´ zhōōvənā´), 1644–1717, French painter, one of a family of painters. He worked in Paris in the studio of Charles Le Brun, whose manner he acquired and whose favor at court he shared. He is best known for his religious paintings; the most important are the series of four canvases for St. Martin des Champs, including the Miraculous Draught of Fishes (1706; Louvre). These later works are characterized by a baroque force, with naturalistic details.
