Antoni Stanisław Brodowski (26 December 1784 – 31 March 1832) was a Polish Neo-classicist painter and pedagogue. Brodowski was born in Warsaw but moved to Paris to study under Jean Augustin and Jacques-Louis David, later Brodowski's idol. He also became a pupil of Anne-Louis Girodet and François Gérard. His compositions are very large-scale with many figures, and often based on themes from Antiquity. Brodowski is also well known for his decorative paintings within palaces and theatres in Warsaw.
