William Cadogan, 1er comte Cadogan par Louis Laguerre

Louis Laguerre (Versailles, 1663 - Londres, 20 avril 1721) est un peintre français qui a été actif en Angleterre.

Il s'est formé auprès de Charles Le Brun à l'académie de Paris, puis il partit en Angleterre en 1683, où il travailla pour Antonio Verrio, puis à son propre compte.

Il rivalisa avec James Thornhill dans la peinture d'histoire, et il décora de grandes maisons de la noblesse (Marlborough House, Petworth House, Chatsworth House et Palais de Blenheim).

Laguerre devint le directeur de la London Academy of drawing and painting, fondée en 1711 pour Godfrey Kneller.
