He was born in Geneva. He moved to Paris where he painted and taught. Among his pupils were his son, François-André Vincent, a notable painter and a leader of the neoclassical movement, and Adélaïde Labille-Guiard, one of the first women to enter the Académie royale de peinture et de sculpture in Paris.
