Matthew Charles Meere (6 December 1890 – 17 October 1961) was an English-Australian artist. Born in London, Meere trained as a muralist at the Royal College of Art before moving to Australia in 1930 in search of work as a commercial artist. He is best known for his stylised art deco paintings of Australian life during the interwar period, including his masterpiece Australian Beach Pattern (1938-40), which has been described as a "powerful and idealised depiction of a beach", achieving an iconic status comparable to that of Tom Roberts' Shearing the Rams (1890) and Russell Drysdale's The Cricketers (1948).
