Jean-Baptiste Mauzaisse (November 1784–1844) was a French painter and lithographer.

Life[edit]

Born in Corbeil, he began studying at the École des Beaux-Arts in 1803. His first painting, L'Arabe pleurant son coursier (The Arab Mourning his Steed), won him a first class medal at the exhibition at the Salon in 1812. Mauzaisse's specialty was painting historical subjects, especially battle scenes, but he also painted portraits.[1] In 1822, he was commissioned to decorate several ceilings in the Louvre.

He died in Paris.
