Jules Félix Ragot, is a French painter born in Paris in 1835 who died in Brussels in 1912. He was a student of Jean Murat (1807-1863) and François-Edouard Picot (1786-1868). He began at the Salon of 1867.

A portrait- and genre- painter with a preference for still lifes, he was part of a traditional realist movement with post-Impressionist influence. Ragot was very famous in Belgium during his lifetime since he was the tutor of Queen Marie- Henriette. King Leopold II of Belgium acquired several of his works. One of the greatest art critic of that time, Joris-Karl Huysmans (1848-1907) spoke of him in glowing terms.

He was active in Saint-Gilles and his oeuvre is among the cultural common good of Belgium.
