George Howland Beaumont (6 Nov 1753- 7 Feb 1827) was a British painter and a key figure in the establishment of the National Gallery. His most famous painting was this one of Peele Castle during a storm, which inspired the poet William Wordsworth to write 'Elegiac Stanzas Suggested by a Picture of Peele Castle in a Storm, Painted by Sir George Beaumont'. This painting now resides in New Walk Museum.
