Yuan Jiang (Chinese: 袁江; pinyin: Yuán Jiāng; Wade–Giles: Yüan Chiang); was a Chinese landscape painter who lived in the Qing dynasty (1644–1912). His specific years of birth and death are not known. He served at the imperial palace during the Yongzheng era (1722–1735).[1]

Yuan was born in Yangzhou in Jiangsu province.[2] He was part of an artistic family; his nephew Yuan Yao was also a landscape painter. Yuan painted landscapes and garrets, as well as bird-and-flower paintings and paintings of beasts. His landscapes and garrets contained accurate compositions and minute details that were suitable for construction.
