Ellen Ravenscroft (1876–1949) was an American painter and printmaker.

A native of Jackson, Mississippi, Ravenscroft studied under William Merritt Chase and Robert Henri, and had lessons in Paris with Claudio Castelucho. Among the awards which she received during her career were the portrait prize of the Catherline Lorillard Wolfe Art Club in 1908; the same institution's landscape prize in 1915; and a special prize and honorable mention from the Kansas City Art Institute in 1923.[1] In 1941 she was a founder member of the New York Society of Women Artists, of which she also served as president; she also founded the Studio Gallery on Fifth Avenue. She was active in St. Louis in the 1920s, but by 1926 had relocated to Provincetown, Massachusetts. She was known for her white-line woodblock technique.[2]
