Elias Brenner (April 18, 1647 – January 16, 1717), was a Swedish painter, numismatist, and archeologist.
Brenner was born in Isokyrö, and at the age of 17 was studying archeology where he later became involved in the antiquities trade. Brenner's study of antiquities led him to create art himself, and he worked as a portrait miniature painter and numismatist. In 1690 he married the Swedish writer, poet, and hostess Sophia Elisabet Brenner. He died in Stockholm in 1717.
