Miguel Jerónimo de Cieza (1611-1685) was a Spanish painter.

Jerónimo de Cieza was born at Granada, and was one of the best scholars of Alonso Cano, whom he imitated both in drawing and in colour. He painted historical pictures with reputation, and according to Palomino, his best works are in the Convent of the Angel, and in the Hospital of the Corpus Domini, at Granada. He died in Granada at an advanced age in 1685.

His son was José de Cieza.
