Enrique Caravia Montenegro (1905-1992) was a Cuban artist active in the mid-1900s. Born in Havana, Caravia studied at the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes "San Alejandro" in Havana and the Academia Española de Bellas Artes in Rome in the 1920s.

He worked in various mediums, including oil painting, drawing and watercolor, and had various solo and group exhibitions from the 1920s to the 1990s. His work was featured in "Primer Salón de Humoristas" at the Academia de Ciencias de Cuba (1921); an exhibition at the Lyceum of Havana (1933); the Bienal Hispanoamericana de Madrid (1951); "Grabados de Enrique Caravia Montenegro" at the Museo Histórico Plaza in Havana (1987); and "Estampas cubanas de tres siglos" at the Museo Nacional de Colombia in Bogotá (posthumous, 1996).

Caravia won the first prize at the Exposición Interamericana in Seville (1929); the silver at the XVIII Salón de Bellas Artes hosted by Havana's Círculo de Bellas Artes (1936); and the gold at both the XXVI and XXXVII Salones de Bellas Artes (1944 and 1955, respectively).
