Jan Augustini Degelenkamp (1725, Groningen – 1773, Haarlem), was an 18th-century painter from the Northern Netherlands.


According to the RKD he was a landscape painter who made large wall decorations, many of which are still installed in the buildings for which they were designed.[1] He was a pupil of Philip van Dijk in the Hague.[1] He started his career working on pictures of flora for botanists, and contributed to the herbarium of the Leiden hortulanus Jacobus Schuurmans Stekhoven.[2] His pupils were his son Jacobus Luberti Augustini, Egbert van Drielst, Hermanus Numan, Gabriël van Rooyen, and Hendrik Tavenier.[1]
