Jean-Louis Jacottet (1806, Enchallens – 1880, Paris) was a Swiss-born landscape painter and lithographer. He moved to Paris early in his career, where he studied the art of painting. After becoming a French citizen, he took part in the Salon de Paris in 1827 and 1839, as well in various other international exhibitions. He was part of the Exposition Universelle in 1855. His work is kept in 12 volumes in the National Library of France, in the department Cabinet des Estampes, in Paris. 

Among his works as both a landscape painter and a lithographer, are views of Montmartre, Lyon, Nantes Isere, as well as of the Pyrenees, the city of Baden-Baden (1840), Switzerland, Italy, North America and multiple works on Paris.
