19th C. Pastoral Oil On Canvas By Henry John Yeend King
Henry John Yeend King was born in London in 1855 and first apprenticed as a glass painter before studying under Victorian artists William Bromley in London, and Leon Bonnat and Fernand Cormon in Paris. His technique was influenced by the French school of Realism and Impressionism, which honed his ability to emphasize a well-defined figure against a myriad background of boldly lit vegetation. This technique, known as plein air or "open air," seems a familiar concept today, but was a revolutionary procedure in the late 1800's. His prolific body of work garnered the artist many prestigious awards during his lifetime, and his paintings can be found in major museum and private collections.
The painting is in excellent condition with minor in-painting to a few areas not detected by normal sight. It is signed by the artist in the lower left hand corner and housed in a more recent frame.
