Eugène Robert Poughéon (18 July 1886 – 1 March 1955) born in Paris, was a French artist, painter, illustrator and museum curator.
In 1914 Poughéon won the Prix de Rome. In 1927, he was awarded the silver medal at the Paris Salon, and two years later the gold medal. In 1935 he started teaching at the École des Beaux-Arts and at the Académie Julian. He was made director of the French Academy in Rome in 1942, and soon after became curator of the Musée Jacquemart-André.
Besides his paintings, murals, frescoes, and decors, Poughéon also illustrated books as well as providing artwork for banknotes.
