Ferdinand Jagemann (24 August 1780, Weimar – 9 January 1820) was a German painter.
As son of the librarian Christian Joseph Jagemann, he was brother to the actress Karoline Jagemann. Karoline was mistress to Charles Augustus, Grand Duke of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach, who allowed Ferdinand to train with the Tischbein painters. He was also a student of the court-painter Georg Melchior Kraus in Weimar and Füger in Vienna. He then went on study trips to Paris and Italy. He was well known as a portraitist, drawing Friedrich Schiller on his deathbed. He died as a professor at the Fürstliche freie Zeichenschule in Weimar, and his eulogy was given by Goethe (whom he had painted in 1805, 1806, 1817 and 1819).
