Jean Dubreuil, also known as Jean Du Breuil (22 July 1602 – 27 April 1670), was a French mathematician, writer and essayist. He lived for a long time in Rome where he studied architecture. He is known for his work about the theory and practice of perspective.

"His work on perspective is probably the most influential ever published expressly for the use of a lay audience" (Millard).
