The Self-portrait of Giorgione is a possible self-portrait by the Italian painter Giorgione. There are two versions. Neither is univerally accepted by experts as being by Giorgione. One is in the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum; this is often dated to around 1508, and described as the artist posing as David.

The other is in the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest, from which it was stolen on 5 November 1983. It was recovered in Operation Budapest.
