Isaac Henzell (1815-1876)

Biography of genre, landscape and portrait artist Isaac Henzell (1815-1876)

Isaac Henzell (1815-1876) was a genre, landscape and portrait artist.

Henzell was born in Sheffield in 1815 and was descended from the Huguenot family De Henzell.

Henzell settled in Tyneside in 1619 and was first recorded as an artist in Newcastle-on-Tyne in 1841.

Shortly afterwards, Henzell emigrated to Australia with his young nephews Charles Napier Hemy (1841-1917) and Bernard Hemy (1845-1913) who were later to become the celebrated marine artists, but returned in 1854.

Henzell spent most of his working life painting in the Newcastle area, frequently travelling to London, where he had an address, to show and sell his work.

Henzell exhibited at the Royal Academy and Suffolk Street.
