Charles Coleman (c. 1807 – c. 1874) was an English landscape and animal painter, born in Pontefract.

In 1835, Coleman went to Rome to study the paintings of Michelangelo and Raphael. From 1848 to 1850 he made etchings of scenes and animals in the "Campagna Romana", after exhibiting at the Royal Academy (RA) in London, and these were published in 1850.C. Coleman. A series of subiects peculiar to the Campagna of Rome and Pontine marshes. However, he was dismissive of the RA's academic approach and believed that observation from nature was primary in the education of an artist.

He remained largely unknown in his native country but became a major influence on the Italian landscape painter Giovanni Costa, whom he met in the early 1850s in the Campagna, and was considered the founder of the "Campagna Romana" school of painting in that country.

Coleman died in Rome around 1874. His son Enrico Coleman (1846–1911), was also a landscape painter (in oils and watercolour).
