This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Henry Deacon Hillier is the name the artist Henry Hillier Parker signed on his Scottish paintings to avoid contractual obligations he had with the gallery that sold his Henry H. Parker paintings. I did some research on the subject a few years ago and contacted Robert Mitchell, of the Bank House Gallery in Norwich England, who told me the story.

Biography from Odon Wagner Gallery:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Henry H. Parker was a Midlands landscape painter working in the last quarter of the 19th Century.  It is believed that he was born in London and was based there for most of his life.

Like many of his contemporaries, he concentrated on painting “pure” landscapes – a genre that he mastered early in his career.  His landscapes are lush and tranquil, frequently featuring a figure in a boat or walking down a country path.  The scenes are often sunny and bright and the waters are calm and soothing. 

His style shows an influence by the Impressionists in his use of bright colours and quick brushstrokes, but a definite understanding of Academic principles is also displayed.  This style of painting was typical for late Victorian landscape artists who sought to incorporate Impressionist techniques in their more traditional paintings.  His landscapes and skies were created with a free, yet controlled application of pigment, while the watery areas of his work were handled in the more traditional way – using glazes to create depth and reflection.  His paintings were well composed, balanced.  He painted mostly views of the Thames, in Surrey, Kent and Wales.
