Hendrik Jozef Frans de Cort (1742, Antwerp - 28 June 1810, London) was a Flemish landscape painter. He studied in Antwerp and was active in Paris, but settled in England. From 1790, he exhibited many works at the Royal Academy. His landscapes, previous to his settling in England, were embellished with figures and animals painted by Ommeganck and P. van Regemorter. They are much in the Italian taste, with views of cities and ancient ruins, pleasingly coloured and neatly finished. In the Belvedere at Vienna there is by him a 'View of the old Castle of Temsch on the Scheldt at Antwerp' (1774).
