Jan Christiaan Poortenaar (Amsterdam 23 July 1886 - Naarden 15 October 1958) was a Dutch graphic artist, graphic designer, painter, watercolourist, draughtsman, etcher, lithographer, wood engraver, illustrator, author and publisher. He was self-taught, but was taught by Piet van Wijngaerdt and Willem Witsen. He received a Royal grant for painting at age 20, and this was followed by exhibitions in Brussels and London. From 1914 to 1922 Poortenaar lived in London, where he made his first major etchings of Trafalgar Square and the Waterloo Bridge. In 1915, he won the silver medal at the International Exhibition in San Francisco.

He painted landscapes, Oriental scenes, portraits, cityscapes, flowers, still lifes, and exlibris. He wrote books with his own illustrations, translated books and illustrated other books and magazine articles.
