Henry John Yeend King
A Summer's Day In The Country 1880

Henry John Yeend King was a London painter known for his landscapes and genre subjects. A member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and the Royal Society of British Artists, he studied under William Bromley, Bonnat, and Cormon in Paris.
King exhibited 115 times at the Suffolk Street Gallery and 36 times at the Royal Academy. He had at least another 200 exhibitions in England, Munich, and Berlin, as well as the 1889 Paris International Exhibition (for which he won a Bronze Medal). In 1898 his picture of ‘Milking Time’ was purchased by the Tate Gallery, one of London's finest galleries.
King’s work is typical of popular late Victorian paintings that feature rustic themes as well as more fanciful garden scenes with beautiful ladies. In this lovely painting, his robust plein air technique and bold color palette reflect his Paris training.
