19th C. Oil on Board by Henry John Yeend King


Offered for sale is a 19th century pastoral oil painting on board by Victorian genre and landscape artist Henry John Yeend King, (1855-1924). The painting depicts a stream flowing past some standing elk or deer, through a colorful yet desolate countryside. This painting is representative of Yeend King’s work idealizing the rustic genre scenes found in the countryside settings of Great Britain and the French Provinces.

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 set into the original carved frame that has undergone some minor restoration. The painting is in excellent condition with a recent professional cleaning.
