Benjamin Robert Haydon (1786-1846 ) was an English historical painter and writer. Haydon was well known as a lecturer on painting and design, and from 1835 onwards visited all the principal towns in England and Scotland on lecture tours. His ambition was to see the chief buildings of Britain adorned with history paintings representing her glory. John Keats named Haydon in several of his works, including Addressed to Haydon (1816), To Haydon, and To Haydon with a Sonnet Written on Seeing the Elgin Marbles (1817).   more from wikipedia »
