Jean Restout (15 November 1666 in Caen – 20 October 1702 in Rouen) was a French painter and part of the Restout dynasty of painters, studying under his father Marguerin Restout. He is also known as Jean I Restout or Jean Restout the elder to distinguish him from his son Jean II Restout, also an artist.

He married Magdeleine Jouvenet, sister of Jean Jouvenet, and his style resembles that of his brother-in-law so closely that many of Restout's paintings are misattributed to Jouvenet.
