Grigol (Giorgi) Maisuradze (Georgian: გრიგოლ [გიორგი] მაისურაძე) (1817–1885) was a Georgian painter and a founder of realistic bookish in the Georgian portraiture.
Maisuradze was born in Tsinandali into the relations of serf of Prince Alexander Chavchavadze, a poet and general in the Imperial Russian service. In 1836, Chavchavadze emancipated Maisuradze and sponsored his education in St. Petersburg where he studied under guidance of Karl Bryullov. In the 1850s he returned to his original Georgia and taught painting in Kutaisi where he died in 1885. Most of his works have been lost.
