Eugen Gustav Dücker (also Eugène Gustav Dücker; 10 February [O.S. 29 January] 1841 was born in Arensburg (now Kuressaare in Estonia) – and died 6 December 1916 in Düsseldorf, Germany) was a romanticist Baltic German painter.

He lived and developed almost all his career in Düsseldorf. He is associated with the Düsseldorf school of painting. A notable student of his was the Norwegian landscape painter Adelsteen Normann who studied with Dücker from 1869 to 1872.[1] Other pupils included Heinrich Hermanns, Franz Korwan, Georg Macco, Otto Modersohn, Fritz Overbeck, Edgar Meyer, Heinrich Petersen-Angeln, Oskar Hoffmann and Carl Wuttke. Despite his career's roots in Germany, he spent a lot of his time in Estonia, where he painted idyllic landscapes of the sea and the countryside.
