Eitaro Ishigaki (石垣 栄太郎 Ishigaki Eitarō, December 1, 1893 – January 23, 1958) was an American artist.
His painting, Man on the Horse (1932), depicted a plain-clothed Chinese guerrilla confronting the Japanese army, heavily equipped with airplanes and warships. His other painting, Flight (1937), depicted two Chinese women escaping Japanese bombing, running with three children past one man lying dead on the ground.
During World War II, he worked for the United States Office of War Information. In 1951, Ishigaki was arrested and deported to Japan with his wife, Ayako Ishigaki, where he died after seven years.
