Johann Joachim Winckelmann (9 December 1717 - June 8, 1768) was a German archaeologist.
Born 1717 in Stendal, the son of a shoemaker, Winckelmann attended the Coellnische Gymnasium in Berlin and the school at Salzwedel and, in 1738, was induced to go as a student of theology to Halle.

In 1755, before leaving for Rome, Winckelmann published his Gedanken über die Nachahmung der griechischen Werke in Malerei und Bildhauerkunst ("Thoughts on the Imitation of Greek Works in Painting and Sculpture"), followed by a pretended attack on the work, and a defense of its principles, nominally by an impartial critic.
