This stunning watercolour, unusual of subject and detail, could be described as the best work ever produced by this artist, painted in 1883 in memory of his childhood in Brighton, aged 12 at the time. His usual work portrays the beautiful Sussex countryside in fine atmospheric detail.

Henry George Hine R.I. was the son of a coachman. He was self-taught, and began by copying his vicar’s Copley Fielding watercolours. After some years painting Sussex scenes he was apprenticed to the engraver Henry Meyer in London. Thereafter he spent two years in Rouen, and in 1841 became a wood engraver for Landells. At this time he also drew for Punch and later for rival publications. He began to exhibit in 1830, and was elected a member of the Royal Institute in 1894. Vice President from 1888 to 1895. He exhibited 92 watercolours at the Royal Institute and others elsewhere including the Fine Art Society. Agnews and Son and in Manchester and Liverpool Galleries. He is represented at the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Fitzwilliam (Cambridge), Leeds City Art Gallery, Williamson Art Gallery, Towner Gallery and elsewhere at Hitchen, Hove, Eastbourne, Southend, Maidstone, Manchester, Beecroft. Leicestershire and Sydney (Australia) art galleries/ museums.
