The Magic Circle is an oil painting in the Pre-Raphaelite style, created in 1886 by John William Waterhouse. The painting depicts a witch or sorceress drawing a magic circle on the earth to create a ritual space.

The Magic Circle was shown at the Royal Academy in 1886, and, after Consulting the Oracle and St. Eulalia, was Waterhouse's third exhibit with a supernatural theme in as many years. The painting was well-received at its exhibition, and was purchased for £650 the same year by the Tate Gallery, through the Chantrey Bequest.
