William Powell Frith (19 ianuarie 1819 – 9 noiembrie 1909), a fost un pictor englez specializat in portrete si povesti din era Victoriana, ales in Academia Regala in anul 1852. A fost descris ca "cel mai mare pictor englez de scene sociale de la Hogarth"
Nascut in Aldfield, North Yorkshire, Frith a fost incurajat sa urmeze arta de catre tatal sau,  hotelier in Harrogate. S-a mutat la Londra in 1835 si a inceput sa studieze arta la Sass’s Academy din Charlotte Street, dupa care s-a inscris la Royal Academy Schools. Frith si-a inceput cariera ca portretist si si-a expus lucrarile pentru prima data la British Institution in 1838.
Principala influenta asupraa lucrarilor lui au avut-o subiectele domestice foarte populare pictate de Sir David Wilkie. Cunoscuta lucrare a lui Wilkie, "The Chelsea Pensioners" a dat un impuls creatiei celor mai frumoase compozitii ale lui lui Frith.
S-a retras din Academia Regala in 1890 insa a continuat sa expuna pana in 1902.
Frith a fost un traditionalist care si-a facut cunoscuta aversiunea fata de arta moderna in cateva scrieri. A fost si un inamic patimas al miscarilor pre-rafaelita si estetica pe care le-a satirizat in pictura  "A Private View at the Royal Academy" (1883), in care Oscar Wilde este descris tinand un discurs despre arta, in timp ce prietenii lui Frith privesc dezaprobator.
Frith a dus o viata de familie cam neobisnuita - casatorit cu Isabelle si cu doisprezece copii, in timp ce la o mila distanta intretinea o metresa(Mary Alford si inca sapte copii (Mary Alford) - in mare contrast cu scenele de familie descrise in picturi ca "Many Happy Returns of the Day". Frith s-a casatorit cu Mary dupa moartea Isabellei in 1880. In ultimii ani de viata a pictat multe copii ale picturilor lui cunoscute, precum si lucrari neinhibate din punct de vedere sexual, ca de exemplu nudul "After the Bath". Renumit povestitor, scrierile lui, mai ales autobiografia lui, au fost foarte populare.
