Henry Howard (1769-1847) "Goddess Iris (Allegorical Portrait?)", Neoclassical Oil Painting, ca.1800
Although unsigned, this wonderful romantical painting is an absolutely authentic work of the well-known English artist Henry Howard (1769 London - 1847 Oxford). A comparison with other paintings of this artist (see additional images) provides a convincing confirmation of the authorship.
Henry Howard was initially trained by Philip Reinagle, whose daughter he married in 1801, and from 1788 studied at the Royal Academy. In 1791 he moved to Italy with a reference letter from Reynolds to the English ambassador Lord Hervey, made a stop in Florence, then went to Rome, and in 1794 via Venice, Vienna and Dresden returned to London. There he very soon became a popular historical and portrait painter and illustrator, regularly participating in exhibitions of the Royal Academy, British Institute, etc. In 1808 the artist joined the Royal Academy as real member. His works are displayed in major British museums.
