Ernst Fries (22 June 1801 – 11 October 1833) was a German painter.
Fries was born in Heidelberg. He became a pupil of Karl Kuntz at Karlsruhe, and afterwards studied at the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich, and in Italy. Examples of his work are: “A View of Tivoli,” “Sorrento and the House of Tasso,” “The Waterfall of Liris at Isola di Sora,” “The Castle of Massa,” and "A View of Heidelberg". He committed suicide, by cutting his wrists in a delirium from scarlet fever, at Karlsruhe, aged 32.
His brother, Bernhard Fries, was a landscape painter of note.
