Self-Portrait with Palette (French: Autoportrait à la palette) is an 1878–79 painting by the French artist Édouard Manet. This late, impressionistic work is one of his two self-portraits. Velasquez's self-portrait in Las Meninas was a particular inspiration for Manet's painting, which despite its allusion to the previous artist's work is very modern in its focus upon the personality of the artist and loose paint handling.

A long series of prominent collectors have owned this painting, which was sold for a $29.48 million at Sotheby's on 22 June 2010.
