Group Portrait is a compilation album by the American band Chicago, released in 1991 by Columbia Records and Legacy Recordings originally, later reissued on the band's Chicago Records label. It includes hits and album cuts from the band's first fourteen albums, including rare tracks.

Unlike most of the band's other official compilation and live albums, "Group Portrait" is not assigned a number in the album title number sequence. It is one of the rare albums that included commentary from all of the band members, including former members Peter Cetera and Danny Seraphine. Unlike the 2003 anthology The Box released later, this collection only covers their tenure with Columbia Records, and doesn't feature any of their Warner Bros. material.
