Henry Hatfield Cubley

Henry Hadfield Cubley was born in Newark, Nottinghamshire in 1858. Henry was the nephew of William Cubley, an influential figure in Henry's life, as not only was William a teacher and a previous Mayor of Newark, but also an accomplished landscape artist.

Henry became a successful artist in his own right, moving to Matlock Bath, Derbyshire in 1888, and going on to exhibit at the Birmingham Salon and the Royal Academy on numerous occasions. Henry's vibrant country scenes are instantly recognizable for their atmospheric quality, as well as the artist's sensitively rendered depictions of highland cattle.
