Jorge Inglés, (active 15th century) was a Spanish painter. His dates of birth and death are not known.

Inglés was probably born in England, inferred by his name, but he may have had a Flemish ancestry. He came to Castile to decorate the Old Cathedral, Salamanca. His style reveals his perfect knowledge of Flemish painting, particularly Rogier van der Weyden, as well as the school of Tournai where he learned tapestry.[1]

The only documentary evidence of this painter is a testament to the Íñigo López de Mendoza, 1st Marquis of Santillana, dated June 5, 1454, which refers to an installation for the chapel of the Castle of Buitrago del Lozoya, the "altar of the Angels, which I commissioned to the master Jorge Inglés, painter ... ". This work is on display since 2012 at the Museo del Prado thanks to an agreement with Íñigo de Arteaga y Martín, 19th Duke of the Infantado, its owner. The altar (which was mentioned by Antonio Ponz in his Viage de España (Journey around Spain) when he visited Buitrago) - was composed of a table dedicated to Saint George (now lost), an image of the Virgin, two tables and two singing angels with praying figures of the Marquis and his wife, Catherine Suárez de Figueroa, and a predella with the busts of the Fathers of the Church.
