Jean-Baptiste Raguenet

Dates1715 - 1793

Very little is known about the life of Jean-Baptiste Raguenet. He specialized in painting views of the city of Paris. He owned a small shop on the rue del a Colombe on the Ile de la Cité, where he sold his views, often to Grand Tourists. British visitors appreciated his detailed architectural descriptions of Paris during the 1700s, and many of his paintings traveled north to English country houses.
