Moritz Michael Daffinger (January 25, 1790 – August 21, 1849) was an Austrian miniature painter and sculptor.
He was a pupil of Heinrchi Fuger, from 1809 he specialised in painting on ivory, having formerly worked on china. Later, he was influenced by the English portrait painter Thomas Lawrence, who was in Vienna in 1815 for the Congress of Vienna. Daffinger painted more than a thousand portraits, which were predominately of the Austrian imperial house.
His portrait was on the obverse of the Austrian 20 schilling banknote that circulated until the introduction of the euro.
