Richard Wilson(1 august 1714 – 15 mai 1782) a fost un pictor peisagist galez si unul dintre membrii fondatori ai Academiei Regale in  in 1768. Wilson este considerat parintele picturii peisagiste din Marea Britanie.
Fiul unui cleric, Wilson s-a nascut  in Penegoes, Montgomeryshire. Familia sa erao o familie veche, respectata,  Wilson fiind verisor primar cu primul Duce de  Camden. In 1729 a plecat la Londra si a inceput sa picteze portrete sub indrumarea unui artist obscur, Thomas Wright.
Intre 1750 si 1757 a plecat in Italia si a studiat peisagismul sub indrumarea lui  Francesco Zuccarelli, el fiind primul cel mai important peisagist britanic. S-a concentrat asupra peisagisticii si peisagisticii bazate pe literatura clasica, dar cand lucrarea sa "The Destruction of the Children of Niobe" (1759-60)  a devenit de notorietate, a inceput sa primeasca multe comenzi de la familiile bogate care doreau portete clasice potrivite rangului lor.
