  • About the artist
    Frederick Henry Henshaw, landscape painter, came from Birmingham. His work was greatly influenced by J. M. W. Turner. By 1829, Henshaw was living at 13 Charlotte Street, London. Between 1837 and 1840 he travelled in Germany, Switzerland and Italy. However, his paintings are mostly British landscape views in the Midlands, Wales and Scotland. Henshaw exhibited in London at the Royal Academy, the British Institution and the Society of British Artists in Suffolk Street, between 1829 and 1864. He also exhibited at the Birmingham Society of Artists. He occasionally collaborated with another painter, R. J. Hammond. Today, paintings by Henshaw are in the collections of Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery and Glasgow Art Gallery.
