Henry Hillier Parker studied at St. Martins School of Art and later at the Royal Academy schools in London. A contemporary of (and a very similar painter to) Benjamin Williams Leader, Parker specialised in pastoral landscapes of the River Thames and the Home Counties of England. Like Frank Holl, Sir Hubert Herkomer, and Sir Luke Fildes, Parker also worked as an illustrator for the Illustrated London News. Unusually for such a popular and successful artist, Henry Parker never exhibited his work in London but instead in the US and Canada, where his work continues to be tremendously popular to this day.
