Árpád Szenes (also French: Árpád Szenès; May 6, 1897, Budapest – January 16, 1985, Paris) was a Hungarian-Jewish abstract painter who worked in France.

He and the Portuguese-French painter Maria Helena Vieira da Silva married in 1930 and became French citizens in the 1950s. The Árpád Szenes-Vieira da Silva Foundation, inaugurated in November 1994 and located in Lisbon, houses a museum that prominently features both artists' works.
