{{subst:Quick infobox|Frederick Newenham|1807|1859|}} Frederick Newenham (born 1807 died 1859), portrait-painter, born in 1807, appears to have been a member of the family of Newenham residing in County Cork. He practised in London as an historical and portrait painter, and exhibited in 1838, at the Royal Academy, 'Parisina'. He was selected in 1842 to paint a portrait of Queen Victoria for the Junior United Service Club (exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1844), and also a companion portrait of the prince consort. Subsequently he became a fashionable painter of ladies' portraits, some of which, with occasional subject pieces, he exhibited at the Royal Academy and British Institution. Newenham died on 21 March 1859, aged 52.[DNB 1][DNB 2][DNB 3][1]
