Konstantin Karl von Kügelgen (1810 in Saratov – 1880 in Dorpat) was a German landscape painter and the son of Karl von Kügelgen.
His first art lessons were from his father, which he received together with his cousin, Carl Timoleon von Neff. In his youth he traveled to Italy. Later, he studied for two years in Munich, where he copied paintings from museums in the Kunstareal.
After the death of his first wife, Sally von Zezschwitz (1814–1839) he returned to the Baltics, where he worked as a drawing instructor. In 1840, he married his second wife, Alexandrine Zoege von Manteuffel (1820-1846), a distant relative of his mother. Two years after her premature death, he married into the prominent Maydellfamily.
He also wrote a memoir entitled Errinerungen aus meinem Leben (Memories from my Life), which was published posthumously in Saint Petersburg.
His daughter, Sally von Kügelgen, from his third marriage, also became an artist. Paul von Kügelgen , a son from his second marriage, was a journalist.
