Johannes Gumpp (born August 14, 1626) was an Austrian painter.
He is notable for his 1646 self-portrait showing him looking into a mirror while painting himself. The painting is on display in the Vasari corridor which connects to the Uffizi Gallery, Florence. He created another similar painting and is known for no other works.
Gumpp was born in Innsbruck and was the son of Christoph Gumpp, an architect. He was likely part of the same Gumpp family that produced artists in the 16th and 18th centuries.
