Jakob Gauermann (1773–1843) was a German landscape and genre painter and engraver born in Oeffingen, near Stuttgart.

He at first worked as a stonemason at Hohenheim, but his strong inclination for drawing brought him to the knowledge of Duke Charles I of Württemberg, who enabled him to receive an education in art. After this he travelled for six years in Switzerland, but in 1798 he went to Vienna. After this he visited in succession the Tyrol and Styria, making sketches, which he worked up into water-colour drawings and oil pictures. He also executed several etchings of landscapes. He died in Vienna in 1843.
