Henry H. Parker
1858 - 1930Born in 1858, Henry Parker lived in London and studied at the St Martin's School of Art. He started his working life as an illustrator for the Illustrated London News, and by the age of 23 had become known as a landscape painter. Throughout his life he enjoyed widespread popularity as an artist, and this is today witnessed by the number of his works consigned to Galleries and Museums throughout the world.
From 1923, Parker exhibited in the United States, especially in Chicago, where he was unable to meet the demand for his pictures. His paintings were also popular with the Canadians and were hung in all the leading clubs throughout Canada and the States.
Parker specialised in painting Landscapes particularly harvesting scenes, and river subjects. He painted mainly in the South East of England, in Surrey, Sussex, and along the Thames where he frequently stayed at Goring and Streatley. He also painted in the Worcestershire area and in Wales.
