This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Henry C. Tryon was born in Chicago in 1847.  After graduating from the public schools,and while in his 17th year, he enlisted in the army in a regiment attached to the Second Army Corps, Army of the Potomac, serving until the close of the war.

Afterward he was a pupil in the Pennsylvania Academy of Design, with the purpose of becoming a landscape painter, drifting partly by choice and partly by accident into scene painting, which he has practiced in nearly every State in the Union.

He was the artist at Wood's Museum at the time of the great fire (October 1871), and afterward at McVicker's Theater.  He is better known in all the other cities than Chicago.

He has been a pupil of the eminent artists William Hart, N.A., and Thomas Moran, N.A. and was elected an associate member of the Chicago Academy in 1874. Mr.Tryon is a 32d degree Mason, and a member of the Grand Army of the Republic.

He has had a large and varied practical experience, has a fine education, and has given considerable attention to newspaper writing on art and theatrical subjects. His most noticeable points of excellence, are perhaps, free and careless depth in the handling of foliage, brilliancy and purity of color, and thoughtful calm in the combination and harmonies of tender tones of grays.
