       Zhang Xuan (張萱, 713-755) was a Chinese painter who lived during the Tang Dynasty (618–907).

       Although he painted many pieces of art, he was best known for the painting Court Ladies Preparing Newly-Woven Silk (搗練圖), of which no copy survives except a copy painted by Emperor Huizong of Song (reigned 1100–1125, 宋徽宗趙佶) in the early 12th century. Zhang also painted Spring Outing of the Court Ladies (虢國夫人遊春圖), of which later painters imitated, including Li Gonglin (李公麟) of the Song Dynasty.
