Jacques-Édouard Gatteaux (4 November 1788, Paris - 9 February 1881, Paris) was a French sculptor and medal engraver. He studied under his father Nicolas-Marie Gatteaux (also a medal engraver) and Jean-Guillaume Moitte.
Among his medals are examples showing Corneille, La Fontaine, Buffon, Malherbe, Rabelais, the coronation of Charles X and the arrival of Louis-Philippe. He designed marble busts of Rabelais and Michelangelo, as well as the statue of Anne de Beaujeu in the Reines de France et Femmes illustres series in the jardin du Luxembourg in Paris. In 2004, the musée du Louvre preempted a Sotheby's sale in Paris of a 74-cm high bronze statue of Minerva by him from 1843.
