Giuliano Bugiardini (January 29, 1475 – February 17, 1577) was an Italian painter of the late-Renaissance period known as Mannerism, active mainly in Florence.

Also known as Giuliano di Piero di Simone, he may have initially apprenticed with a sculptor Bertoldo, but then apprenticed with the painter Domenico Ghirlandaio. In 1503, he joined the painter's guild, the Compagnia di San Luca, and began an association with Mariotto Albertinelli that continued until 1509, when Albertinelli moved to the studio of Fra Bartolomeo. Bugiardini’s Virgin and Child can be seen in the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Vasari mentioned Bugiardini assisted Michelangelo very briefly in 1508 with the painting of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. He also painted in Bologna in 1526–1530. He painted a Rape of Diana. He painted a Martyrdom of St Catherine for Santa Maria Novella in Florence, based on Michelangelo's sketches.
