Christian Gottlieb Schick (15 August 1776, Stuttgart – 7 May 1812, Stuttgart) was a German Neoclassical painter. His history paintings, portraits, and landscapes are characterized by romantic tendencies. Of these, he is best known for his portraits.

He studied from 1787 at the Hohe Karlsschule under Philipp Friedrich von Hetsch, then from 1795 under Johann Heinrich von Dannecker, and finally spent 1798 to 1802 in the studio of Jacques-Louis David. Between 1802 and 1811 he stayed in Rome, where his late work gradually acquired romantic tendencies.
