Henry John Yeend KING
Henry John Yeend King (1855-1924) was a British artist best known for his paintings of rustic English farms and young women strolling in the countryside. His
technique was influenced by Impressionism, but is notably more restrained, detailed, and realistic in its application. Born on August 21, 1855 in London, England,
King went on to study as a glass painter, later traveling to Paris to study under Léon Joseph Florentin Bonnat and Fernand Cormon where he learned Impressionist
techniques. His works are in the collections of the Manchester Art Gallery, the New Walk Museum and Art Gallery in Leicester, and the Brampton Museum in
Newcastle-under-Lyme, among others. King died on June 10, 1924 in London.
