Gaspar Bouttats the Elder or Gaspard Bouttats the Elder (c. 1640 – 1695–96) was a Flemish printmaker and engraver of the Baroque period.
He was born in Antwerp in a family of engravers. He was the son of the engraver Frederick Bouttats the Elder and Marie de Weert. His uncle Philibert Bouttats as well as his younger brother Frederik Bouttats the Younger built reputations as engravers.
He was trained by his father. He was registered in 1668–69 with the Antwerp Guild of Saint Luke as a wijnmeester (wine master) which was a title reserved for the children of the members of the Guild and thus indicates that his father was also a member of the Guild at that time. He was dean of the Guild in 1690–1691.
He engraved chiefly for the booksellers, and also made some plates after different masters. They are principally etched, and some finished with the burin.
