Heywood Hardy

(British, 1842-1933)

Born into a family of artists, Hardy had two paintings in the Royal Academy Exhibition in 1864 before leaving that same year to study at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Most of his work focused on animals, and he regularly used the animals from the London Zoo as subjects. He also traveled to Egypt in 1873 to paint wildlife.
