Virgil Vătășianu (March 21, 1902—November 15, 1993) was a Romanian academic and art historian.

Born in Sibiu, he studied Law and Art History, becoming one of the two leading practitioners of the latter discipline in Cluj-Napoca during his time, alongside Nicolae Sabău. A specialist in medieval art, he became renowned through his numerous works, which earned him both the Herder Prize and election to the Romanian Academy,[1] as a titular member, in 1974.[2] He died in Cluj-Napoca.[1]
