Henry Maidment (British, fl, 1889-1914 )

Pastoral Landscape with Cottage and Ducks by a Pond

Painting: 20” x 30”

Harry Maidment was born in 1868 into a family of cabinet makers in Hoxton, UK. His elder sister Ellen married landscape painter Octavius Thomas Clark. Maidment's work is very similar in style and content to paintings by Octavius and his sons Stanley and Louis. Octavius is known to have taught his sons to paint and may have taught his brother-in-law too.

  Maidment was first noted as "artist" on the 1891 census, when he was 22 and living with his parents in Islington. He married Alice Fisher Piggott in 1894 and they lived with their three children in Oxford Road, Islington.

  Maidment, like O.T. Clark, was a painter of rural scenes and landscapes, often depicting country life in its natural environment. He also used the pseudonyms of "R. Fenson" and “A. Wynn”. Dated examples of his work have been seen spanning from 1898 until 1914. The high quality of the painting and decorative subject matter have fueled an ever growing demand for Maidment’s work.

During World War II, Harry moved to Nottinghamshire, where he died in 1942 at the age of 74.
