Sir Godfrey Kneller, 1st Baronet (8 august 1646 – 19 octombrie 1723) a fost pictorul portretist englez cel mai important de la sfarsitul secolului al XVII-lea si inceputul secolului al XVIII-lea, precum si pictorul de curte al monarhilor englezi de la  Charles II pana la George I.
Kneller s-a nascut Gottfried Kniller in Lübeck, Germania, fiul lui Zacharias Kniller. Kneller a studiat in Leiden, insa a devenit elevul lui Ferdinand Bol si Rembrandt in Amsterdam. Mai tarziu a calatorit impreuna cu fratele lui John Zacharias Kneller, pictor ornamental, la Roma si Venetia, a pictat subiecte istorice si portrete, apoi s-a mutat la Hamburg. Au venit in Anglia in anul 1674, la invitatia ducelui de Monmouth.Si-a deschis un studio in care a produs portrete aproape pe scara industriala. Portretele lui au constituit un model urmat pana la William Hogarth  si Joshua Reynolds.
Cand a murit Sir Peter Lely in 1680, Kneller a fost numit pictor principal al curtii de catre Charles II. A fost facut baronet de catre regele George I, iar  intre  1711-1716 a devenit seful Academy of Painting and Drawing din Great Queen Street, Londra. Picturile lui au fost apreciate de iluministii John Dryden, Joseph Addison, Richard Steele si Alexander Pope.
Kneller a murit de febra tifoida in 1723, iar ramasitele lui pamatesti au fost depuse in biserica din Twickenham.
