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.
