Giuseppe Aureli (December 5, 1858 in Rome – 1929) was an Italian painter and watercolourist. His work is noted for its historical subject matter, portraits of Italian noble families as well as genre paintings and local scenes, especially work with Oriental themes.

Giuseppe Aureli was born in Rome in 1858. He received his early art education at the Academia de San Luca. He exhibited in various exhibitions; including: The International Exhibition of 1888 in Munich and the World Fair of 1893 in Chicago, but his Oriental works were rarely included in these early exhibitions. Having his workshop in Rome, Aureli was in a position to exchange ideas with the most prolific Orientalist artists at that the time. With those influences, Aureli began painting more works with Oriental subject matter such as harem scenes and exotic beauties. He died in 1929 in Anzio. More on Giuseppe Aureli
