Antoine Dominique Magaud (4 August 1817 – 23 December 1899)[1] was a French painter.

Magaud was born in Marseille, France. A distinguished director of the Ecole des Beaux Arts in his native city, he excelled in mural decoration. His masterpiece is the glorification of Christian civilization in the historical gallery of the Marseilles Religious Association. Of the fifteen great mural paintings which comprise the work, one represents the landing of Columbus, and one shows Alessandro Volta mindful of God in his laboratory.

Magaud died in Marseille in 1899.
