Jean-Louis Laneuville (1748–1826) was a French painter best known for his portraits during the French Revolution.
Laneuville was born in Paris, studied under his contemporary Jacques-Louis David, and exhibited at the Salon de la Jeunesse from 1783-1789. During the French Revolution (1789–95) he portrayed deputies to the Convention, including Bertrand Barère de Vieuzac (1792-3; Kunsthalle Bremen), Pierre-François-Joseph Robert and Joseph Delaunay (1793; Palace of Versailles) and Jules-François Paré (1795; Carnavalet Museum). In 1791 he was elected a judge of the Prix d'Encouragement, and in 1796 signed a petition defending the acquisition of looted artworks.
Laneuville's style was similar to that of David, with the subjects usually seated before monochromatic, neutral backgrounds.
