François-Louis Dejuinne (1786–1844[1][2]) was a French painter. He was born in Paris in 1786, and learned the art of painting under Girodet. He visited Rome, where he studied the works of Titian, Paolo Veronese, and other great masters. He died in Paris in 1844. His paintings were mostly historical; among them are the 'Ascension of the Virgin ' and 'St. Geneviève ' for Notre-Dame de Lorette, and 'The Four Seasons' for the Trianon Palace.
