Johan Zoffany, Zoffani or Zauffelij was a German neo-classical* painter, active mainly in England. His works appear in many prominent British national galleries such as the National Gallery, London, the Tate Gallery and in the Royal Collection.

Johan Zoffany was born Johannes Josephus Zaufallij in Frankfurt on 13 March 1733. He undertook an initial period of study in a sculptor's workshop in Ellwangen in the 1740s (possibly at the workshop of sculptor Melchior Paulus) and later at Regensb (showing 500 of 6045 characters).
