François-Joseph Navez (Charleroi, 1787 - Brussels, 1869) was a Belgian neo-classical painter.

A pupil of Jacques-Louis David, he spent five years in Italy between 1817 and 1822.

He was a very successful portrait painter. He also painted many mythological and historic subjects.

The orientalist painter Jean-François Portaels was his pupil (and son-in-law).
