Charles-Joseph-Émile Loubon (January 12, 1809 – March 1, 1863) was a French genre painter.

Loubon was born in Aix. The son of a wealthy merchant, Loubon was fortunate to have parents who encouraged his artistic pursuits and he studied under Louis Mathurin Clérian at the École de dessin d'Aix-en-Provence, as well as Jean-Antoine Constantin and François Marius Granet.[1] He traveled with Granet to Rome in 1829, and in 1845 became director of the School of Practical Design at Marseilles.

He is known for his pastoral and animal paintings.[1]

Loubon is interred at the Cimetière Saint-Pierre in Marseilles.
