Henry Robert Morland (?-1797) was a portrait painter best remembered for a portrait he painted of King George III, and for being the father of the animal painter George Morland.

He was born in the early 1700s, there being much uncertainty as to the date. His father was the genre painter George Henry Morland, and Henry Robert followed an art career as well, becoming a painter of portraits and domestic subjects, in both oil and crayon. He exhibited some 118 works from 1760 to 1791 at the Society of Artists, the Free Society, and the Royal Academy.

He also engraved in mezzotint, restored paintings, and sold artists supplies, including crayons that he made himself. He was for a time very successful and even painted a portrait of George III, the king sitting in person for the portrait. He became quite wealthy for a time, but lost it all, and was often bankrupt in later years.

He died on 30 November 1797 at Stephen Street, Rathbone Place in London, after having led an unsettled life. His wife Maria Morland was also an artist, and exhibited in 1785 and 1786 at the Royal Academy. Their son was the celebrated George Morland, who was one of the most popular painters of his day.
