Benjamin Haydon


British historical painter and writer who, although he was distinguished, never made much material headway. He left behind an autobiography and journals. During his lifetime he was incarcerated in debtor's prison three times. He finally killed himself after failing to win a Parliament decoration competition, dying of self-inflicted knife and gunshot wounds on 22 June 1946, 10:45 AM, London, England.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from "The Diary of Benjamin Robert Haydon: 1816-1824" edited by ‎Willard Bissell Pope (Harvard University Press, 1960), p. 347: "The extracts from his father's journal are no longer attached to the diary, but, as FSH noted, were 'removed for safety, 26/8/73,' and attached to his genealogical scrapbook. BRH's father wrote: 'Thursday, Jany 25th, '86. Sally taken in Labour & at nine at night was delivered of a fine boy & is as well as could be expected.' As FSH noted, the date is wrong, for in 1786 January 25 (the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul) fell on a Wednesday instead of a Thursday."
