Johan Thomas Lundbye (1 September 1818 - 25 April 1848) was a Danish painter and graphic artist, known for his animal and landscape paintings.
He was inspired by Niels Laurits Høyen's call to develop nationalistic art through depictions of Denmark's characteristic landscapes; the historical buildings and monuments, and the country's simple, rural people.
He became one of his generation's national romantic painters, along with P.C.Skovgaard and Lorenz Frølich, to regularly depict the landscape of Zealand.
