Franz Anton von Schiedel (1731–1801) was a German natural history artist, noted for his botanical illustrations of Nikolaus Joseph von Jacquin’s Hortus botanicus Vindobonensis (Botanical Garden of Vienna), which was published in three fascicles from 1770 to 1776. Von Scheidel undertook several thousand drawings of plants, fish, birds, and mammals for Jacquin and many other patrons.
