Antonio Caimi (1814–1878) was an Italian painter. He was born at Sondrio. He tained initially in the Accademia Carrera of Bergamo under Diotti, but then moved to study in the Brera Academy under Sabatelli.
He was chiefly engaged as a portrait painter, but also painted The Beheading of St. John the Baptist and The Return from Babylon. He wrote a work on The Arts of Design, and the Lombardian Artists from 1777 to 1862 published in Milan in 1862. He was secretary of the Brera Academy at Milan from 1860 until his death in that city.
