Dominique Vivant, Baron de Denon (4 January 1747-27 April 1825) was a French artist, writer, diplomat, author, and archaeologist. He was appointed first director of the Louvre Museum by Napoleon after the Egyptian campaign of 1798-1801.

Born at Givry, Saône-et-Loire, Vivant Denon was sent to Paris to study law, but he showed a decided preference for art and literature, and soon gave up his profession. In his twenty-third year he produced a comedy, Le Bon Pré, which obtained a succès d'est (showing 500 of 5257 characters).
