Henry Hillier Parker lived in London for most of his life. He specialized in picturesque peaceful pastoral landscapes in oils frequently including farming subjects, such as harvesting and haymaking, river and coastal landscapes, and traditional rural structures. Quite a bit of his work of art was done in the regions of southern England, working at the end of the Victorian Era.
He studied art at St. Martins School of Art and later at one of the Royal Academy schools. Though a popular and successful artist, he never featured in any major national exhibitions in Europe during his lifetime though he did exhibit in Canada and the USA.
Henry H. Parker's works show not only the influence of the Impressionist School but also owe something in technique and subject matter to his well-known contemporary Benjamin Williams Leader. He also worked for a time as an illustrator for the Illustrated London News. Henry Hillier Parker additionally painted under the names H.D. Hillier or H. D. Hillyer.
