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

Henry John Sylvester Stannard was the Grandson of John (1794-1882) and son of Henry Stannard (1844), both well-known Bedfordshire artists. He was educated at Bedford Modern School and the National Art Training School, South Kensington. He quickly went on to achieve a reputation for painting scenes of Bedfordshire. Before his marriage, Stannard resided at Harpur Place, Bedford but in 1894 he moved to Flitwick.

In 1896 he was elected a member of the Royal Society of British Artists. As well as his reputation as an accomplished artist at this time, Stannard also became well known as a lecturer, teacher and judge of art exhibitions.

His international career began after he received interest and patronage from the British Royal family.  He painted many pictures of their Sandringham estates, and he received many personal commissions from them.

Despite his fame, Stannard still supported local exhibitions including the Bedford Society of Artists and his father's exhibitions in Harpur Street.

In 1939 he founded the Midland Sketch Club. It was at the 1950 annual exhibition of this club (in the Bunyan Room of Bedford Public Library) that Stannard exhibited his last works.

Stannard died on the 21st January 1951 at Bedford Hospital.


His work has been exhibited and held by the Royal Society of British Artists, London; Royal Academy, London; Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool; Manchester City Art Gallery, Royal Society of
Artists; Birmingham; Institute of Painters in Watercolour, London.
