Alan Odle (1888-1948) was an English illustrator, and the husband of the English novelist Dorothy Richardson. His grotesque and subversive style was a precursor of surrealism. He illustrated an English edition of Voltaire's Candide, Mark Twain's 1601 and Edgar Allan Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher.

He married Richardson in 1917. The film director and Python Terry Gilliam is a connoisseur of his work.
