Henry Wilkinson was a British painter and printmaker best known for his depictions of sporting dogs hunting in the countryside. Born in 1921 in the United Kingdom, he studied first at the Winchester College of Art followed by the Royal College of Art in London. Wilkinson first learned engraving while working for the gun maker Hammond’s of Winchester, and continued to hone his craft throughout his career. He later taught at the Royal Society of Painters, Etchers, and Engravers where he met and worked under George Vernon Stokes, a preeminent printmaker who also often portrayed dogs in his work. Wilkinson died in 2011 in Kent, United Kingdom.


Henry Wilkinson was born into an artistic family, his father having been taught to paint by John Ruskin, eventually became the Headmaster of Winchester College of Art.

Following his early studies at Winchester College of Art, entrance was gained to the Royal College of Art in the Painting School. By hard work a place was also gained in the Engraving School, under Robert Austin R.A. and Malcolm Osbourne MA. MBE, where he won the Royal British Institute Scholarship in Engraving. This gave him extra time at the college and enabled him to gain a traveling scholarship, as well as the diplomas. Study in Heidelberg, France and Italy followed. After the war artist-engraver Henry Wilkinson was elected to the Royal Society of Painters, Etchers & Engravers, ultimately as a counselor. For many years he was professor of the Engraving School at the City and Guilds of London, a consultant to the Morris Singer Bronze Founders and a council member of the Royal Society of Painter Etchers. While a student at the Royal College of Art Wilkinson was introduced to George Vernon Stokes the famous canine artist and engraver, Wilkinson then helped Stokes print his editions until his death in 1954.
