Frederick William Frohawk was an English zoological artist and lepidopterist. He began his lengthy and successful career at the age of 20 when he was appointed zoological artist to The Field, an important naturalist magazine of the time.

A talented and prolific artist, Frohawk worked in a variety of media including oils, watercolors, and pencils, and he was also an accomplished lithographer and wood engraver. His knowledge of bird biology is evident in his lifelike paintings and illustrations which were published in a number of books and journals. His work continues to be popular with collectors today.
