Georges Limbour (11 August 1900 – 22 May 1970) was a French writer of prose and poetry.
He was a member of the Surrealist Movement in Paris during the 1920s, but was expelled in 1929. Before his association with André Breton and the Surrealists, Limbour co-edited, along with Roger Vitrac and René Crevel, the avant-garde review Aventure (1921-22). Later, he contributed to Georges Bataille's journal Documents (1929-30), and, with a number of other dissident ex-surrealists, signed the anti-Breton pamphlet Un Cadavre.
Among Limbour's writings translated into English are L'Enfant polaire (The Polar Child) (1922), Glass Eyes (1924) and The Panorama (1935). Other works of note include a prose collection L'Illustre cheval blanc and a study of the painter André Masson.
