Benjamin Robert Haydon (/ˈheɪdən/; 26 January 1786 – 22 June 1846) was an English painter, specialising in grand historical pictures, although he also painted a few contemporary subjects and, with some reluctance, portraits. His commercial success was damaged by his often tactless dealings with patrons, and by the enormous scale on which he preferred to work. He was troubled by financial problems throughout his life, which led to several periods of imprisonment for debt. He committed suicide in 1846.He gave lectures on art, and kept extensive diaries, which were published after his death.
