The British / London artist Henry John Yeend King (1855-1924) was a painter primarily known for his landscapes of the English countryside; his technique was influenced by Impressionism but was notably more restrained and more realistic in the details. He studied under William Bromley and with Léon Joseph Florentin Bonnat and Fernand Cormon in Paris. The plein-air technique in France influenced his art, and on his return to England, he chose to specialise in landscapes and depictions of rustic genre motifs. Yeend King lived in London for most of his life, like many of his contemporaries his heart was 'in the country'. He received formal recognition of his talent in 1898 after his painting 'Milking Time' was bought by the Tate Gallery.
