Henry Tresham (c.1751–17 June 1814) was an Irish-born painter active in London in the late 18th century. His reputation was primarily gained through large-scale history paintings, somewhat similar in style to those of Henry Fuseli, but all of which are now lost. These were based on his travels to Rome. He was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy in 1791 and became a Royal Academician in 1799. He was professor of painting at the Royal Academy from 1807 to 1809. He was involved in several of the major history painting ventures of late 18th-century London, including Robert Bowyer's History Gallery, the Boydell Shakespeare Gallery and Thomas Macklin's Holy Bible. Among the surviving examples of his painting is The Earl of Warwick's Vow before the Battle of Towton at Manchester City Art Gallery.
