Charles Baudelaire by Étienne Carjat[1] (ca. 1863) is a photographic portrait of Charles Baudelaire taken by Étienne Carjat.

The photo was published in a widely distributed series entitled Galerie contemporaine, littéraire, artistique.

Arthur Symons in Charles Baudelaire: A Study (1920) noted that:

"In the portrait by Carjat, his face and his eyes are contorted as if in a terrible rage ; the whole face seems drawn upward and downward in a kind of convulsion ; and the aspect, one confesses, shows a degraded type as if all the vices he had never committed looked out of his eyes in a wild revolt."
