Henry Reilly (1845-1905) Australia

Biographical Information

Henry Rielly was active from the 1870s to 1902. He exhibited with the Victorian Academy of Arts (1870-95), the NSW Academy (1874-76) and the Queensland Art Society and played an active role in the affairs of the V. A. A. A contemporary of Louis Buvelot, his work manages to achieve much more than simple description and is frequently expressive of a more complex view of the landscape. In about 1892 he moved to Glen Aplin, near Stanthorpe, with his two sisters who were also artists and whose tuberculosis may have necessitated the move. All are buried at the Stanthorpe Cemetery. Sotheby's is grateful to Lynne Seear at the Queensland Art Gallery for assistance in preparing this catalogue entry. Edit or add to this biography
