Wang Jian (simplified Chinese: 王鉴; traditional Chinese: 王鑒; pinyin: Wáng Jiàn; Wade–Giles: Wang Jian); ca. 1598-1677 was a Chinese landscape painter during the Ming dynasty (1368–1644) and Qing dynasty (1644–1912).

Wang was born in Taicang in the Jiangsu province.[1] His style name was 'Xuanzhao' (玄照) and his pseudonyms were 'Xiangbi' (湘碧) and 'Ranxiang anzhu' (染香庵主).[2] Wang's precise color style of painting was influenced by Dong Yuan. His own works stand out, and he is a member of the Four Wangs and Six Masters of the early Qing period.
