Markos Botsaris was a painting created by French artist Jean-Léon Gérôme in 1874. The painting depicts the Greek revolutionary Markos Botsaris, who played an important role in the Greek War of Independence against the Ottoman Empire.

Markos Botsaris is shown in the painting as a heroic figure, holding a rifle in his hand, and looking steadfastly into the distance. He is adorned in his traditional Greek costumes, with a bandolier of bullets across his chest. The painting is a tribute to Botsaris and the struggle for Greek independence.

Gérôme was known for his highly realistic and detailed works, and Markos Botsaris is no exception. He paid careful attention to the details of the Greek warrior's clothing, weapons, and expression. The painting is currently in the collection of the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, France.
