Lorenzo Vaccaro (1655 – 10 August 1706) was an Italian late-Baroque sculptor. He worked in a formalized restrained style.

He was born in Naples, the son of a lawyer. He apprenticed with Cosimo Fanzago and Dionisio Lazzari. He was a close friend of Francesco Solimena. He was murdered at Torre del Greco in August 1706.

His son Domenico Antonio Vaccaro was also a sculptor. The ceramic sculptor Giuseppe Laguidara was one of his pupils. .[1]
