William Heath (1794–1840) was a British artist. He was best known for his published engravings which included caricatures, political cartoons, and commentary on contemporary life.

His early works often dealt with military scenes, but from about 1820 on he focused on satire. Some of his works were published under the pseudonym "Paul Pry".

Heath helped found two early caricature magazines, Glasgow and The Northern Looking Glass.

Heath created a numbered series of political Caricatures between 1830 – 1834 for Mc'Leans Monthly.
