The portrait painter Benjamin Faulkner was born in Manchester. He was a prolific exhibitor, sending works to the Royal Academy of Arts nearly every year from 1821 until his death, and always giving a London address, although many of his sitters were Mancunians. His brother, Joshua William Faulkner, was also a portrait painter, specialising in miniatures, and based in Manchester.
