Antonio Ambrogio Alciati (1878 - 8 March 1929) was an Italian painter mainly in Northern Italy.
He was born in Vercelli, in the Piedmont. Initially studying at the Istituto di Belle Arti in Vercelli, in 18889, he moved to Mila, where he studied under Vespasiano Bignami and Cesare Tallone at the Brera Academy. In 1920, he replaced Tallone as professor of figure at the Academy. His portraits recall the impasto effects of Tranquillo Cremona, Giovanni Boldini, Mosè Bianchi, and Eugène Carrière.
