  • Michael Vandergucht (or van der Gucht; 1660 – 16 October 1725) was a Flemish engraver who worked for most of his career in England. Vandergucht was born in Antwerp, where he became a pupil of Philibert Bouttats. He joined the Antwerp artists' guild, the Guild of St Luke, in 1673.

He died at his house in his house, the Golden Head in , and was buried in the churchyard of St Giles-in-the-Fields. Michael kept to a restrained form of engraving, without etching, but was surpassed by his son Gerard, who became one of the leading engravers in London, following the French method of combining precise engraving with the etched tones. Gerard had over 30 children, including Benjamin Vandergucht and Gerard Vandergucht.
