Yeghishe Martirosi Tadevosyan (Armenian: Եղիշե Մարտիրոսի Թադևոսյան, September 24, 1870, Etchmiadzin — January 22 1936, Tbilisi) was an Armenian painter associated with the Peredvizhniki and Mir Iskusstva movements. He was awarded the title of “Honored Artist” by the Armenian SSR in 1935.

He studied at the Lazarian School, then entered the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture. Vasily Polenov was his teacher and friend. He graduated in 1894 and began participating in exhibitions by the Peredvizhniki shortly after.

In 1898, he travelled to Palestine with Polenov and would revisit the Middle East several times. In 1901, he moved from Moscow to Tbilisi and became an art teacher.

His early work had been influenced by Vardges Sureniants but, after this time, he began to employ impressionistic and pointillistic techniques. In 1916, he became the founder and head of the Union of Armenian Artists.

Yeghishe Tadevosyan is buried at Komitas Pantheon which is located in the city center of Yerevan. A street in Yerevan and an Art school in Etchmiadzin (now Vagharshapat) are named after him.
