Franz Joseph Manskirsch (1768-1830) was a German portrait and landscape painter. Manskirsch came from an artist family, born the son of the landscape painter Bernhard Gottfried Manskirsch (1736–1817) and grandson of the painter Jakob Manskirsch (1710–1766). He was a student of his father and uncle, the flower painter Peter Joseph Manskirsch (1742-1809). He had worked in Rhineland since 1790 and in England since 1793. There he portrayed future Prime Minister George Canning. In London he delivered illustrations to Rudolph Ackermann.
