Louis Raphaël Cahen d'Anvers (24 May 1837 – 20 December 1922) was a French banker.
Born in 1837 as the son of Meyer Joseph Cahen d'Anvers and Clara Bischoffsheim, he was a scion of two wealthy Jewish banking families. He married Louise de Morpurgo, of an also wealthy Sephardi Jewish family from Triest. Two of their daughters, Alice (1876–1965) and Elisabeth (1874–1944), were painted by Pierre-Auguste Renoir in Pink and Blue in 1881. A third daughter, Irene, was also the subject of a Renoir painting entitled "Little Irene." Louis was so dissatisfied with the painting that he hung it in the servants quarters and delayed payment of only 1500 francs.
