Mariana is a 1851 oil-on-wood painting by John Everett Millais. The image is based on the solitary Mariana William Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, written between 1601 and 1606. In the play, Mariana was be to be married, but was rejected when her dowry was lost in a shipwreck. The painting is regarded as an example of Millais' "precision, attention to detail, and stellar ability as a colorist".

When it was first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1851, the display caption contained lines Tennyson's "Mariana" (1830):

She only said, 'My life is dreary,
He cometh not,' she said;
She said, 'I am aweary, aweary,'
I would that I were dead!'
