Portrait of Don Luis de Góngora is a 1622 painting in oils of the poet Luis de Góngora by Diego Velázquez. It is influenced by Caravaggio, especially in its chiaroscuro, and also applies lessons Velazquez had learned in Italy, such as the rich palette as used by Titian. It is now in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The portrait was commissioned with the assistance of Velázquez's teacher, Francisco Pacheco.
There are two other versions of this portrait of uncertain attribution. One is held by the Museo Lázaro Galdiano, Madrid, and the other by the Prado.
