Marcelle Bergerol (born Cahen) (1900, in Paris - 1989, in Paris) was a figurative and regional painter, specializing in paintings of France and Paris, Brittany, Quercy in the Dordogne region..

She exhibited in Paris at the “Salon des Indépendants” starting in 1927 and later showed her work at the “Salon d'Automne” from 1929 to 1936, and the “Salon des Tuileries” from 1930 to 1934. She also exhibited in several galleries in Paris, like the Gallery du Verseau, the Gallery Altarriba and the Gallery Armand Drouant, before and after World War II.

Color and forms are two distinctive elements in Bergerol's work. Her art was influenced by Cézanne, Monet, and Pissarro. As a post-impressionist painter, however, she was especially influenced by the use of colors in fauvist painter Albert Marquet's work.
