Henry John Yeend King (1855-1924)

Yeend King lived in London for most of his life however, like many of his contemporaries his heart was 'in the country'. He traveled extensively throughout England and France in search of suitable subject matter. . His specialty was scenes of rustic genre and the countryside - almost never showing the heavily industrialized cities. His paintings depict pretty farm girls (often using his own daughter as a model) at work in the fields or on the farm - much like the French Realist artist Julien Dupre; or women at rest in tranquil landscapes or cottage gardens.


King was elected to the Royal Society of British Artists in 1879 and the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours in 1886, exhbiting widely including over 90 works at the Royal Academy. Today his paintings can be seen in many collections including: the Tate; the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery; Leeds, Manx, Reading, Sheffield and Ulster museums; and the Manchester Art Gallery.
