William Brassey Hole RSA (7 November 1846 – 22 October 1917) was an English artist, illustrator, etcher and engraver, known for his industrial, historical and biblical scenes.

William Hole spent some weeks in Palestine in 1901 with paints and a Kodak camera, recording the places and people to create authentic settings and costumes for a series of illustrations of the life of Christ. Eighty watercolours had been completed by 1905, and were exhibited in 1906 at the Fine Art Society, which published them as The Life of Jesus of Nazareth.
