Hendrik Martenszoon Sorgh (circa 1610 – buried on 28 June 1670) was a Dutch painter of genre paintings from the Golden Age. Sorgh was born in Rotterdam and was a student of David Teniers de Jonge and Willem Pieterszoon Buytewech. Sorgh mainly painted interiors with farmers. His kitchen interior has extensive still lifes. He also painted market scenes, portraits, and marine and historical scenes. Sorgh’s works include, for example, Schrijver man, Interieur met Jacob en Esau, and Een keuken.

He married Adriaantje Hollaer on 20 February 1633. She became famous in 1947 for her wedding portrait painted by Rembrandt and depicted on the Dutch 100-guilder banknote, printed from 1947 – 1950. Through her sister, he was the brother-in-law of the painter Crijn Hendricksz Volmarijn. Her portrait by Rembrandt was long regarded as a counterpart to a portrait of him, but it is no longer certain, since an 18th-century engraving of that portrait contained the title Nicholas Berchem. The engraved portrait of him in De groote schouburgh der Nederlantsche Konstpainers and painters by Arnold Houbraken was based on his self-portrait, which is currently in a private collection.

In 1659 he became head of the Rotterdam guild of St. Luke. [His students were Jacobus Blauvoet, Abraham Diepraam, Cornelis Dorsman, Pieter Nijs, and Pieter Crijnse Volmarijn.
