Thérèse Lessore (5 July 1884 – 10 December 1945) was an English artist who worked in oil and watercolour. She was a founder member of the London Group, and the third wife of Walter Sickert.

Lessore was born in Southwick, West Sussex. Her parents were the French painter Jules Frederick Lessore (1849–1892), who had lived in England since 1871, and his wife Ada Louise Cooper. Her grandfather was Émile Lessore (1805–1876), a French ceramic artist and painter who had designed and decorated Wedgwood pottery in the 1860s. Her brother Frederick Lessore was a sculptor who founded and ran the Beaux Arts Gallery in London (where this watercolour was exhibited), and her older sister Ada Louise Powell was a Wedgwood pottery designer

Thérèse Lessore attended the Slade School of Fine Art from 1904 to 1909. In her final year she was awarded the Melvill Nettleship Prize for Figure Composition.
