Frederick Lee Bridell (baptised 5 December 1830 – 20 August 1863) was a popular painter of 19th century Britain, initially as a Portrait artist, gaining favour with luminaries such as Elizabeth Barrett Browning who entertained Bridell and his wife (Eliza Bridell Fox, a fellow artist), for their wedding meal at Bocca di Leone, Rome in 1859.
His early professional career was as an apprentice to picture dealer Edwin Holder, who had him copying pictures by Old Masters although he also funded his education abroad.
