Isaac Ilyich Levitan (Russian: Исаа́к Ильи́ч Левита́н; 1860 – 1900) was a classical Lithuanian-Russian landscape painter who advanced the genre of the "mood landscape".

Though his late work displayed familiarity with Impressionism, his palette was generally muted, and his tendencies were more naturalistic and poetic than optical or scientific.
