Andreas Rumpf (3 December 1890 – 22 June 1966) was a German classical archaeologist born in Potsdam. He was a specialist of ancient Greek and Roman art, in particular, vase painting and Greek wall painting. He was the son of painter Fritz Rumpf (1856–1927).[1]

He studied classical archaeology at the University of Leipzig under Franz Studniczka (1860-1929), earning his doctorate with a dissertation on the murals in Veii, titled "Die Wandmalereien in Veji." In 1923 he received his habilitation at Leipzig with a thesis on Chalkidiki vases. From 1928 to 1960 he was a professor of classical archaeology at the University of Cologne.[1]

He was editor of the "Griechische und römische Kunst" (1932, part of the Einleitung in der Altertumswissenschaft series).[1]
