Jacques Guillaume Lucien Amans (1801–1888) was a French neoclassical portrait painter working in New Orleans in the 1840s-1850s.
Amans was trained in the French neoclassical tradition of portraiture. He exhibited at the Paris Salon from 1831 to 1837.
Artist Jean Joseph Vaudechamp & Amans traveled on the same ship from France to New Orleans in 1837. Following Vaudechamp’s departure from Louisiana, in 1839, Amans assumed the role as the most celebrated portraitist in Louisiana.
Amans later returned to Paris, where he died in 1888.
