Frederick Arthur Bridgman (10 noiembrie 1847 – 13 ianuarie 1928) a fost un pictor american cunoscut pentru picturile lui cu subiecte  „Orientaliste”.  Nascut in Tuskegee, Alabama, a fost fiul unui medic. A inceput ca desenator in New York City, pentru American Bank Note Company in 1864–65 si a studiat arta in aceiasi ani la Brooklyn Art Association si la National Academy of Design. A plecat la Paris in 1866, iar in 1867 a intrat in atelierul renumitului pictor academic Jean-Léon Gérôme (1824–1904), unde a fost influentat de stilul si temele orientale ale lui Gérôme. Dupa aceea, Parisul a devenit sediul sau central. In 1874 a fost ales in National Academy of Design ca membru asociat, apoi a devenit membru plin in 1881. Bridgman a facut prima sa calatorie in Africa de Nord intre 1872 si 1874, impartindu-se intre Algeria si Egipt. Acolo a executat aproximativ trei sute de schite, care au devenit sursa pentru cateva picturi in ulei si care au atras imediat atentia. Bridgman a devenit cunoscut ca „Gérôme american”, cu toate ca Bridgman va adopta ulterior o estetica mai naturalista, punand accentul pe culorile luminoase si stilul pictural. Lucrarea lui importanta de dimensiuni mari, ‘The Funeral Procession of a Mummy on the Nile’, din Salonul de la Paris (1877), cumparata de James Gordon Bennett, Jr., i-a adus Crucea Legiunii de Onoare. Desi Bridgman a fost legat mai mult de Franta, popularitatea sa in America nu a scazut deloc.
