Hans Leu the Elder (German: Hans Leu der Ältere; 1460–1507) was a Swiss painter, native to Zürich.

The Episcopal collection of the St. Gallen Abbey includes the main altar of the church of the Rüti Abbey, probably a late work by Hans Leu der Ältere. During the Reformation in Zürich the altar came to the monastery Wurmsbach where it remained until 1798.
