Jean Urbain Guerin (1760 Strassburg - 1836 Oberenheim, Alsace) received his first artistic training from his father Christophe Guerin. Afterwards he became a student of Regnault and David and, finally, of Isabey (regardless of the fact that the latter was 7 years younger than Guerin). David had great consideration for Guerin in spite of their very different political opinions. He was also greatly appreciated by Marie-Antoinette, whose portraits he executed, as well as those of Louis XVI. During the Revolution he had occasion to prove his gratitude to Marie-Antoinette. As a member of the Section of the Filles Saint-Thomas of the Garde Nationale, he was in the Tuileries on the 20th June 1792 and courageously protected the Queen. He was banished and only returned to Paris at the time of Consulate. It was at that time that he became a pupil of Isabey. Although he already was a perfect artist, one nevertheless feels the influence of Isabey in certain of his portrait miniatures.
