Robert Hancock (1730 - 1817) was an English engraver and artist. Born in Staffordshire, he studied under Simon Fran├žois Ravenet, and worked at the Battersea Enamel Works under Stephen Theodore Janssen. He then became draughtsman and engraver to the Worcester Porcelain Works, where he became known as a pioneer in engraving plates for transfer-printed porcelain. He then moved to the Worcester works and then the Staffordshire Potteries. In the latter part of his career, he focused on engraving in mezzotint. Valentine Green and James Ross the line-engraver were his pupils.
