Juan Martín Cabezalero (1633–1673) was a Spanish draftsman and painter. Born in Almadén, he studied under Juan Carreño de Miranda, court painter to Charles II of Spain; Cabezalero lived at Carreño de Miranda's house until 1666.[1] Both he and Carreño were influenced by Van Dyck.[2]

Few works by Cabezalero have survived.[2] His surviving works include his St Jerome (1666, Meadows Museum, Southern Methodist University, Dallas) and the Assumption of the Virgin (ca. 1670; Madrid, Prado).[2] The latter had been formerly attributed to Mateo Cerezo, also a pupil of Carreño de Miranda.[2]

Antonio Palomino praises Cabezalero's modest, studious nature and laments that he died young.[2]
