Henry John Yeend King was born in London on 21 August 1855. He spent three years working in a glassworks before studying art under William Bromley in London and also with Bonnat and Cormon in Paris. His subject matter remained very English and he went on to specialize in landscapes and rustic genre scenes especially pretty farm girls. He was a typical late Victorian painter of rustic genre scenes but his robust plein air technique and use of bold colours reflect his Paris training.
Yeend King exhibited many works at the Royal Academy from 1874 to 1924, the Royal Society of British Artists, the New Watercolour Society and the Grosvenor Gallery. He was elected member of the Royal Society of British Artists in 1879 and a member of the Royal Institute in 1886 later becoming its Vice President.
His brother-in-law was Robert Gallon (1845-1925) a landscape painter.
Yeend King died on 10 June 1924.
