Charles-Emile Jacque (23 May 1813 – 7 May 1894) was a French painter of animals (animalier) and engraver who was, with Jean-François Millet, part of the Barbizon School.

The school of Barbizon is a French school that worked near the French village of Barbizon near Fontainebleau in the period 1830 to 1870. Starting point was the painting of landscapes, unadorned, in reaction to the romance period. They would paint out in the countryside, where there would be much focus on the composition of colours that would indicate a certain mood. This way of painting is considered to be a forerunner of impressionism.
Their most prominent members Théodore Rousseau, Jean-Baptiste Corot, Charles-François Daubigny, Narcisse Virgilio Díaz, Johan Barthold Jongkind and Jean-François Millet, and also Charles Jacque and Jules Dupré.
