Biography Henry J. Fleuss
Henry J. Fleuss was German, born in Düsseldorf, but is believed to have
settled in England around 1830. A portrait and subject painter in oil
and watercolor, he was employed as Drawing Master at Marlborough
College from 1844 to 1857.
Though relatively little is known of his
work, Fleuss has a certain fame by association: William Morris attended
Marlborough during his time there, and Fleuss's daughter Margaret later
married John Bentley, architect of Westminster Roman Catholic
Cathedral. He is represented in the collections of the Manchester City
Galleries, with a portrait of the Earl of Wilton.
