   Born in Nancy, Jean-Baptiste isabey was the student of various artists, including jacques-louis david. He gained recognition for producing portraits of the leading members of the Constituent Assembly and of Napoléon Bonaparte (see napoléon i). He also designed the uniforms and costumes of the imperial court and was put in charge of organizing imperial celebrations during the first empire.
