Louis Stanislas Marin-Lavigne (1797 - 1860) was a French painter and lithographer. Many of his lithographs today are in major collections in London and New York City.[1]

He obtained his first instruction in painting from Anne-Louis Girodet de Roussy-Trioson, and from 1814 to 1819, followed the courses of the Ecole des Beaux Arts.[2] He first exhibited both as a painter and lithographer in 1824. His best known work, ' The Extreme Unction,' painted in 1824, was reported to be in the collection of M. Dussommerard in the mid-1860s.[2] Amongst his other original works may be cited, 'The Obsequies of the Kings of the ancient Egyptians,' and 'Gaspar Netscher and his Daughter, which are in the gallery at Dresden.[2] His lithographs after eminent painters, old and modern, are too numerous to mention. He obtained a second-class medal in 1840.[2]
