Wincenty de Lesseur (1745 – May 31, 1813) was an eighteenth-century Polish painter. He was born and died in Warsaw.

He was from a family of French descent. He studied under Marcello Bacciarelli, and soon became a master painter in his own right. He mainly focused on portrait painting, and at one point painted the portrait of Stanisław August Poniatowski. He also was a master of the portrait miniature.

Many of de Lesseur's works were collected by the Tarnowski family and are now on display in the Polish Museum, Rapperswil.
