An easel is an upright support used for displaying and/or fixing something resting upon it, at an angle.

In particular, easels are traditionally used by painters to support a painting while they work on it, normally standing up, and are also sometimes used to display finished paintings.

Easels are typically made from wood, aluminum or steel. Artists' easels are still typically made of wood, in functional designs that have changed little for centuries, though new materials and designs are available.

A table top easel is used for the same purpose but is portable.
