The son of a prosperous innkeeper, Frith had to be persuaded by his ambitious father to pursue a career as a painter. He enrolled into the Sass Academy in 1835 (other alumni include Millais and Rossetti) and then studied at the Royal Academy Schools. In 1845 he was appointed RA of the Royal Academy and was elected a full member in 1852. He also showed at the Royal Society of Artists, Suffolk Street and the British (showing 500 of 2545 characters).
