Gladys Wynne (1876 – 24 March 1968) was an Irish water colour artist, who spent most of her life in Glendalough, County Wicklow, living in Lake Cottage. Landscape was her chosen field and she painted the area throughout her career.

She was the fourth daughter of George Robert Wynne,[1] Archdeacon of Aghadoe, Killarney, County Kerry[2] and his wife Ellen Lees (Nell) née Smith.

She exhibited with the Watercolour Society of Ireland, who include her in their collection [3] among 28 "well-known Irish artists". Apart from the Glendalough area, other subjects, all in Ireland, were the Bog of Allen, the County Dublin coast, and County Donegal. Her work has been sold at auction including by Christie's London (on 15 May 2003).
