Artist: Henry Hine
Henry George Hine was born in Brighton, the son of a coachman. He was a self taught artist, learning his skills by copying the work of A. V. Copley Fielding. He spent some years painting before becoming apprenticed to the engraver Henry Meyer in London. He drew for Punch and, afterwards, for rival publications, including the Illustrated London News. Harry, as he was known, studied at Accrington School of Art, the Royal Cambrian Academy and Académie Julien in Paris. A noted landscape painter, he was elected Associate of Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colour in 1879 and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters in 1883. He married Victoria, a painter & etcher, in Hampstead in 1874. Harry died at the grand old age of 97.
