  • Artist Biography
    • This magnificent oil on canvas is a good representation of an English countryside scene of two girls feeding the ducks by a pond. The piece was executed by notable English painter Henry John Yeend King and is signed in the lower right corner. Henry John Yeend King(1855-1924) was a London landscape and rustic genre painter. He started off by working for three years in a glassworks. He studied under William Bromley, and also with Bonnat and Cormon in Paris. He exhibited from 1874 to 1924 at the Royal Academy, Suffolk Street, New Watercolour Society, and elsewhere. He was elected to the Royal Society of British Artists in 1879, the Royal Institute in 1886, and later went on to be the organization vice president. He was also a member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters. In 1898 his picture 'Milking Time' was purchased by the Tate Gallery. Yeend King was a typical late Victorian oil painter of rustic genre, often garden scenes with pretty girls, but his robust plein air technique and bold colours reflect his Paris training. His works can be found in the Tate, Walker AG, Reading, Rochdale, and Sheffield Galleries. Biblio: C. Wood, Dictionary of Victorian Painters
