Joseph Binder (1805–1863) was an Austrian painter.
Binder was born at Vienna in 1805 and received his first art instruction in that city. From 1827 to 1834 he lived at Munich. Two years later he became a teacher at the Stadel Institute, Frankfurt am Main, a post he held until 1839. In 1847 he returned to Vienna and was elected in the following year a member of the Academy, of which he was made a lecturer in 1851. He died in 1864. Binder at first painted portraits, but afterwards turned his attention to historical subjects, a branch of art in which he was very successful. Towards the close of his life he painted frescoes for churches.
The following are some of his best works:
- Portrait of the Emperor Albert II. (In the Kaisersaal at Frankfurt.)
- Madonna and Child.
- The Conversion of the Robber Julian.
