The Lingnan School of Painting, also called the Cantonese School of Painting, is a style of painting from the Guangdong or Lingnan region of China. This school reflects a style of painting founded in 19th century Guangdong province by Gao Jianfu, Gao Qifeng and Chen Shuren who were collectively known as "The Three Greats of Lingnan".

The Lingnan style of painting is more experimental than traditional Chinese painting and is characterized by focusing on blank space and strokes, bright coloring and rendering of background colors. This school of painting enjoys considerable fame and is known as one of the "Three Fineries of Lingnan" along with Cantonese Opera and Cantonese music.
