Louis-Joseph-Raphaël Collin (17 June 1850 – 21 October 1916) was a French painter born and raised in Paris, where he became a prominent academic painter and a teacher.

Discarding the original purpose of his career, he, in 1869, entered the studio of Bouguereau as a pupil, after which he made a course of study under Cabanel. In 1873 he exhibited his first Salon picture, "Sleep," a magnificent nude which secured him a medal, and is now at the Museum of Rouen. In 1875 another picture of similar character was bought out of the Salon by the Government for the Arras Museum, and in 1877 his "Daphne and Chloe" was also purchased for the Museum of Alencon. He has been a member of the Legion of Honor since 1884.

He is principally known for the links he created between French and Japanese art, in both painting and ceramics.
