Francisco Rizi (1608–1685) was a Spanish painter born at Madrid.


He was the son of Antonio Rizi, a native of Bologna, who had accompanied Federico Zuccari into Spain.

Rizi was first trained by Vincencio Carducho. He became painter to Philip IV in 1656, and held the office under Charles II, who added to it the deputy-keepership of the royal keys. A few years prior, he was appointed painter to the Cathedral of Toledo. Rizi died at El Escorial.
