Jean Philippe Goulu was born in 1786 in Geneva and died in 1853 in Buenos Aires. His father was a portrait miniaturist, his brother - Ferdinand Sebastian - a writer. Obviously, Goulu trained with his father and later continued his artistic career in France where he remained until the fall of the 1st Empire. In 1817, he came to Rio de Janeiro, where he established himself as a court miniaturist and drawing teacher of King
Joćo VII. In 1824, he went to Buenos Aires and, in December of the same year, announced himself in the local newspaper as a "portrait miniature painter, who guarantees resemblance of sitters in portraits made by him". Immediately, he became a sought-after portraitist of Buenos Aires high society, especially ladies and military personalities. In 1828, he succeeded Swiss artist Joseph Guth as professor of the drawing class at the University of Buenos Aires. He also gave private lessons to representatives of the local elite.
