Mosan art or Rheno-Mosan art is a regional style of Romanesque art from the valleys of the Meuse and Rhine, in present-day Belgium, especially in Wallonia, and the Rhineland, with manuscript illumination, metalwork, and enamel work from the 11th, 12th and 13th centuries.

The Mosan region was formed largely by the boundary of the Bishopric of Liège, which had political links to the Holy Roman Empire, and ecclesiastical links to the archbishop of Cologne. The region included also the city of Maastricht which was governed in common by the Duchy of Brabant and the Bishopric of Liège.
