Painter of landscape and scenes of rustic life, Henry La Thangue studied at South Kensington, Lambeth and Royal Academy schools. He also studied with J L Gerome in Paris for three years at the Ecole des Beaux Arts. While in Paris he came more under the influence of the Barbizon and plein air painters, such as Bastien-Lepage and Dagnan-Bouveret.

On his return to London he exhibited at the Royal Academy; Society of British Artists, Suffolk Street; Grosvenor Gallery; and New Gallery. He also exhibited at Institute of Painters in Oils; New English Art Club; Royal Society of Artists, Birmingham; Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts; International Society; Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool; Leicester Gallery; Manchester City Art Gallery; Royal Cambrian Academy; Royal Hibernian Academy; Royal Institute of Oil Painters; and Royal Scottish Academy. He became a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Oil-Colours in 1883. In 1898 he was made an Associate of the Royal Academy, and became a full Member in 1912.

La Thangue later lived in Bosham, Surrey. He was a friend of Stanhope Forbes, and was in sympathy with the aims and ideals of the Newlyn School in Cornwall. His subjects tended to be farm workers and country life, rather than fisherfolk.
