Thomas Benjamin Kennington (7 aprilie 1856 - 10 decembrie 1916) a fost un pictor englez de compozitie, social realist si portretist. A fost membru fondator al New English Art Club (NEAC) si al Imperial Arts League.
Kennington s-a nascut in Grimsby din Lincolnshire si s-a pregatit in arta la Liverpool School of Art (acolo a casigat o medalie de aur), la Royal College of Art (RCA) din Londra si la Academie Julien din Paris, unde a studiat sub indrumarea lui William-Adolphe Bouguereau si Robert-Fleury.Mai tarziu s-a mutat la Chelsea in Londra.
A expus la Royal Academy, Londra din 1880–1916, de asemenea si-a prezentat lucrarile in mod regulat la Royal Society of British Artists (RBA) din Suffolk Street si la galeria Grosvenor. A castigat o  medalie de bronz la Exposition Universelle din 1889.
Kennington a devenit cunoscut nu numai datorita picturilor idealizate cu subiecte casnice si scene din viata de zi cu zi, ci si pentru lucrarile social realiste. Lucrari ca "Orphans" (1885), "Widowed and fatherless" (1885), "Homeless" (1890) si "The pinch of poverty" (1891), descriu realitatile crude ale saracilor din Marea Britanie intro maniera care emotiona privitorul. Se presupune ca ar fi fost influentat de pictorul spaniol Bartolomé Esteban Murillo (1618–1682), ale carui lucrari descriau copii ai strazii. A pictat atat in ulei cat si acuarela.
Kennington a murit in Londra pe 10 decembrie 1916. Fiul sau Eric Kennington (1888–1960) a fost de asemenea un artist, ilustrator si sculptor notabil.
