Beata Beatrix is an oil on canvas painting by Pre-Raphaelite artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti, completed in 1872. It depicts Beatrice Portinari Dante Alighieri's poem La Vita Nuova at the moment of her death. Rossetti modeled Beatrice after his deceased wife and frequent model Elizabeth Siddal. The painting pictured is one of a pair- the first. The second Beata Beatrix is less well-known. It was painted ten years after the death of Elizabeth and was still unfinished at the time of Rosetti's death. It was faithfully completed by Ford Madox Brown, a close associate of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. This second painting is in Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, England

In an 1873 letter to his friend William Morris, Rossetti said he intended the painting "not as a representation of the incident of the death of Beatrice, but as an ideal of the subject, symbolized by a trance or sudden spiritual transfiguration."

The painting is on display in the Tate Britain.
