  • About the artist
    Equestrian painter Charles Cooper Henderson was born at the Abbey House, Chertsey, in Surrey; the younger son of amateur artist John Henderson and his wife, Georgian, daughter of author and painter George Keate. Educated at Winchester College, Charles qualified for the bar but did not practise. He also took art lessons from Samuel Prout and became a prolific artist, specialising in hunting and coaching subjects, many of which were published by Messrs Fores of Piccadilly and Rudolph Ackermann. Some were etched by Henderson himself. He sent coaching scenes to the Royal Academy exhibitions in 1840 and 1848. After his mother's death in 1850, he became financially independent. He died at his home at Lower Halliford-on-Thames, Middlesex, aged 74.
