Atilio Malinverno (Buenos Aires, 1890-1936) was an Argentine painter. He was a post-Impressionist, a part of a movement started in the first decade of the twentieth century.

Known as "the philosopher of trees",[1] he devoted himself exclusively to landscape painting in his free time from working in his advertising agency. The main topics of his works were the hills of Córdoba, the Pampas plains, the mountains of Tandil, the coast of Quilmes, the ravines of San Isidro beside the Río de la Plata, and Piriapolis in Uruguay.

He moved for a period to the Córdoba hills, painting in the open air, and on returning to Buenos Aires staged exhibitions at which he successfully sold all his works.

He studied art at the Asociación de Estímulo de Bellas Artes (Fine Arts Association), and made several trips to study art in the Argentine interior, Bolivia, Chile and Uruguay.
