Andrea Joyce Stone (January 29, 1949 - February 18, 2014) was a North-American Mayanist. She studied Maya art at the University of Texas at Austin under the guidance of Linda Schele and, since 1984, taught at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee as a Professor in art history. Her contributions to the scholarship of ancient Mesoamerica include the zoomorphs and cosmic monsters of Quirigua (also her doctoral thesis), the iconography of foreigners at Piedras Negras, issues of sacrifice and sexuality in Classic Maya art, and the underworld imagery of Maya cave painting, particularly at Naj Tunich.
