Arthur Kingsley Porter (1883 – 1933) was an Americanmarker art historian and medievalist. Porter's most significant contribution has been his revolutionary studies and insights into the spread of Romanesque sculpture. His study of Lombard architecture is also the first in its class.

Porter bought the medieval Glenveagh Castlemarker in County Donegalmarker in 1929, and spent several months there each year, learning Irish and studying archaeology and culture. In 1933, he went out for a walk along the beach and vanished. An inquest was inconclusive, but drowning was assumed to have been the most likely explanation for his disappearance.
