Frederick John Widgery (May 1861 – 27 January 1942), was an English artist who painted landscapes and coastal scenery in Devon and Cornwall.

Frederick was the younger son of William Widgery (1826–1893), a self-taught artist.[1] He studied at the Exeter School of Art and went on to the South Kensington Museum School and then to Antwerp,[2] studying under Charles Verlat at the National Art School. Returning to England, he studied at Hubert von Herkomer's School at Bushey in Hertfordshire and in 1903 became Mayor of Exeter.[3][4]
