Biography from VALLEJO GALLERY, LLC, Marine Art Specialists:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

A local born artist of Kingston-on-Hull, he established himself in the footsteps of John Ward, and quickly rose to prominence among the painters of the third largest port of Britain and the reputed “biggest fishing port in the world”. He worked almost exclusively with an agent, James Eyre Jackson, and exhibited in London in 1871. He later wrote that he found the exhibition experience “personally distasteful”. One hundred years later his works would be featured in a televised exhibit from London, celebrating his art.

East Yorkshire is well storied with its historic accounts of the diverse people and cultures who built the country of Great Britain. The region may count several artists amongst those who have prospered within this working class county. Their most common attribute would be a healthy respect and admiration for the sea, and those whose professional lives relied upon it. Both respect and admiration are obvious in the paintings of Henry Redmore.

Enjoying a long career, Redmore studied at the local artists’ school. His work carries on the best of the Dutch marine traditions within the rising nationalistic ranks of English artists. Most of his paintings in the second half of the 19th Century were of subjects within the Humber Estuary, the river Hull and open waters of the North Sea.

A Superior Collection of Works by Henry Redmore Belong to the Permanent Collections of the Ferens Art Gallery & Maritime Museum of Hull, Housed in the Old St. John’s Church & Hull Dock Company.
