Henry Gillard Glindoni was a London genre and historical painter born at Kennington Lane, Lambeth in 1852. He was one of a family of 5 who were left orphaned at a young age. He studied at the Working Men’s College and the Castle Street School of Art. Glindoni started his working life in the theatre helping his Grandfather who was a scene painter. He worked for a number of photographers including Valentine Blanchard colouring prints and painting on porcelain. In his spare time he painted local scenes and also took a number of photographs which are held at the Valence House Museum Dagenham.
At some point he changed his surname originally Glindon, to Glindoni for professional reasons. He exhibited at the Royal Academy, Suffolk Street and the Old Watercolour Society. He became a member of the RBA and RWS. In 1885 he is listed as living at 40 Brewer Street but after 1891, he settled in Chadwell Heath, Dagenham and lived at the junction of Mill Lane and Whalebone Lane North. He died in 1913. His diary and papers are preserved in the Dagenham Library and a number of his works can be found in various collections.
The painting is housed in its superb original gilt frame which is in excellent condition.
