Helen Allingham was a British artist who became known mainly for her genre paintings. She created watercolours and illustrated children's books. Her parents supported her artistic talent at an early age. Helen Allingham attended the Female School of Arts in London. One year later she was one of the first women to be allowed to study at the renowned Royal Academy School. For women at that time, attending an academy was still unusual. She also became the first female member of the Royal Watercolour Society.

Genre painting was devoted to the depiction of mostly rural scenes and village idylls. The painting style had a centuries-old tradition. People and actions were painted that had a real connection to everyday life. The subjects were mainly country people, their daily work and their home environment. The figures had no individual traits, as in a portrait. They were rather a characteristic image of their rural environment. The books of hours of the 15th century and peasant scenes and family pictures of Dutch painting in the 16th century are regarded as the model of genre painting. Their negative depictions of behaviour such as drunkenness and quarrelling disappeared from genre painting in the 19th century. From then on, genre paintings showed a romantic and idealized view of country life.

To earn money, Helen Allingham created numerous illustrations for magazines and children's books. She was the only woman working as an illustrator for the weekly magazine The Graphic. Her growing fame brought her into contact with other well-known artists in London. She eventually married the Irish publisher and poet William Allingham. Among his circle of friends were the writers Thomas Carlyle and Alfred Lord Tennyson. After the marriage, the painter left the weekly magazine and devoted herself to watercolor painting. In 1874 two watercolours of her were exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Helen Allington continued to create works after the birth of her three children. In the course of time, more than a hundred watercolours were exhibited. Helen Allingham painted old houses and courtyards, which disappeared in the course of time and made way for the advancing industrialisation. The extension of the lines for the steam locomotive and the influx of workers and their families changed the landscape. Houses were built to meet the demands of the new era. Thanks to the artist's attention to detail, it is now possible to get an idea of the original appearance of old cottages from her time. The paintings of the painter often serve as a model for the restoration of the remaining old houses. Helen Allingham worked on her paintings until her death. She died after a sudden illness at the age of 78. © Meisterdrucke
