Richard Muther (1860–1909) was a German critic and historian of art, born at Ohrdruf in Germany. He studied at Heidelberg and at Leipzig, where he took his doctor's degree.

He was one of the most prominent German art historians of his time. He wrote Geschichte der Malerei (five volumes, 1899–1902); which appeared in English as The History of Painting, translated and edited by George Kriehn.
