Abraham Hulk Jnr was born in Holland in 1851, the son of Dutch marine and canal scene artist Abraham Hulk Senior (1813 - 1897). His brothers Hendrick Hulk (1842-1937) and William Frederick Hulk (1852-1922) became artists and his uncle, Johannes (John) Frederick Hulk (1829-1911) was a canal and townscape painter. His father taught him and his brothers and his influence can be seen in his style and subject matter.
In 1870, the family settled in London, and Hulk later became a British subject. He began exhibiting at Royal Academy and Royal Society of British Artists from 1876. He married Blanche Werninck in 1874 at St Pancras where the family lived for a few years before moving to Surrey. They continued moving around and lived in Berkshire and then Nottingham before settling in Henley Upon Thames. He spent a lot of his time painting views around southern England and Nottinghamshire near where he lived, however he would also frequently travel back to Holland to paint the landscapes there.
Examples of his work are held by the Beecroft Art Gallery, Sunderland Museum, Victoria Gallery and Williamson Art Gallery.
The paintings are housed in new, English made gilt frames which are in excellent condition.
