Juan Simón Gutiérrez (1634-1718) was a Spanish Baroque painter.

Gutiérrez was born in Medina-Sidonia. He moved to Seville where met and studied Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, as evidenced by the influence on Gutiérrez's works. He enrolled in the Academia de Bellas Artes (Seville) between 1664 and 1667, the year he married. In 1680 he obtained the position of being responsible for the entrance examinations of the new students of the Academy.

Only two known signed works: the Madonna and Child with Saint Augustine, dated 1686, in the Convent of the Trinity of Carmona, which is perhaps his masterpiece, treated as a sacred conversation in which both males and females are interpreted with unquestionable quality, and the other Death of Santo Domingo assisted by Virgin, dated 1711 is preserved in the Museum of Fine Arts of Seville. Other works attributed can be seen in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, in the church of St. Mary the Crowned of Medina Sidonia, and private collections .
