Antonio Cifrondi (June 11, 1655 – 1730) was an Italian painter of the late Baroque, mainly of genre themes. He was active in Brescia and near Bergamo.

Born in Clusone, he is known by canvases mainly during 1722–1730. He often painted aged men or people at work. Cifrondi apparently studied in Bologna with Marcantonio Franceschini, a member of the Cignani circle. He stayed in Rome during 1675–1680. Worked in Paris under Le Brun. He lived in the Benedictine convent of San Faustino in the last decade of his life. He may have met the fellow northern Italian genre painter Giuseppe Maria Crespi.
