Camille Roqueplan (French pronunciation: ​[ʁɔkˈplɑ̃]; 18 February 1803 – 29 September 1855[1]) was a French romantic painter of landscapes, historical subjects, and genre scenes, and a lithographer. He was born Camille-Joseph-Étienne Roqueplan (sometimes spelled Rocoplan) in Mallemort, Bouches-du-Rhône, and died in Paris. He studied in Paris with Antoine-Jean Gros and Alexandre Abel de Pujol and became a student at the École des Beaux-Arts in February 1818.[2]

His younger brother was Nestor Roqueplan (1805–1870), a French journalist, librettist and theatre director.
