Henry King Taylor was a marine and coastal scene painter who lived in London. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1859 to 1864 with titles including ‘The Passing Storm’, ‘The Ramsgate Lifeboat’ and ‘Dutch Shipping’. He also exhibited at the British Institution from 1857 to 1869 as well as at Suffolk Street. He lived at several London addresses and seems to have travelled around the country painting ships and fishing boats off the coast. He also visited Jersey and Holland. His affinity with the sea and its moods shows in his subject matter and his paintings often feature rocky coastlines and choppy seas, some including castles or fortresses as in this fine example.
One of his paintings is held by the Darlington Library.
The work is housed in its original period gilt frame, which is in excellent condition.
