Elias Gottlob Haußmann (also Haussmann and Hausmann, * 1695 in Gera; † April 11, 1774 in Leipzig) was a German late Baroque painter. Haußmann's portraits of the trumpet virtuoso Gottfried Reiche (1726) and the poet Luise Adelgunde Victorie Gottsched (Gottschedin) (around 1750) as well as, above all, his oil painting of Johann Sebastian Bach, which he painted in two versions in 1746 and 1748, are well known.
