Ryland, Henry

Henry Ryland (the painter) studied at the South Kensington Art School, and at Heatherley's in London. He then traveled to France and in Paris studied under Jean-Joseph Benjamin-Constant, and at the Académie Julian under Gustave Boulanger and Jules Lefebvre.

Henry Ryland exhibited at the Grosvenor Gallery, and from 1890 at the Royal Academy. He also was a regular exhibitor at the New Gallery and the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolors, where he became a full member.

Although Henry Ryland did do oil paintings, most of his paintings are done in watercolor which was widely reproduced as prints, containing images of young women in classical draperies on marble terraces. Subjects of this type were popularized by Lawrence Alma-Tadema, J. W. Godward, and Albert Moore. Ryland's painting style mixed themes from the Neo-Classical and Pre-Raphaelite movements.

Henry Ryland also was a stained glass designer and his woodcuts were used in a number of magazines, including the English Illustrated Magazine in the 1880s and 1890s. Henry Ryland is recognized as the foremost of the Neo-Classical painters working in watercolor.
