George Arthur Fripp (June 13, 1813 - October 17, 1896) was a British artist who specialized in watercolours. He was a grandson of the artist Nicholas Pocock and brother of the painter Alfred Downing Fripp.

Fripp was born in Bristol, and educated in Bristol, Birmingham and Leamington.  He had lessons in oil painting from James Baker Pyne and first exhibited at the Bristol Society of Artists in 1832.  In 1834 he accompanied the Bristol artist William James Müller on a sketching tour of Europe, which produced works he later exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1838.

In 1841, he exhibited at the Old Watercolour Society, becoming an associate that year, a full member in 1845, and secretary from 1848-1854.  He became well known for his watercolours, mostly scenic British views.

He married Mary Percival in 1846.  Two of their twelve children also became artists: Charles Edwin Fripp an artist-reporter for The Graphic, and Thomas W. Fripp, a watercolourist in Canada.

Fripp died in Hampstead, London in October 1895.
