The Madonna of Chancellor Rolin is an oil painting by the Early Netherlandish master Jan van Eyck, dating from around 1435. It is on display in the Musee du Louvre, Paris.

The work was commissioned by the energetic Nicolas Rolin (chancellor of the Duchy of Burgundy, portrayed in the picture on the left), for his parish church, Notre-Dame-du-Chastel in Autun, where it remained until the church burnt down in 1793. After a period in Autun Cathedral, it was moved to the Louvre in 1805.
