David was born into an extremely talented family of artists. His father was James Hardy the landscape painter and David’s brothers were the sporting painters, James Hardy Jnr and Heywood Hardy.
David Hardy became a painter of rustic genre scenes and country subjects in a similar style to his cousin, Frederick Daniel Hardy who was the founder of the Cranbrook Colony in Kent.
He exhibited 20 works at Suffolk Street from 1862 to 1870. Six works at the British Institute and one at the Royal Academy in 1855.
His works have great charm and are interesting records of the era.
Hardy lived in Bath and Bristol.
