Being called the "illustrator of heroes" says a lot about a painter. And indeed, the English painter, illustrator, and lithographer Henry Courtney Selous has made a name for himself for his detailed and finely engraved illustrations of numerous heroes from literary fiction and real life, including Venus, Macbeth, Othello, King Lear, and Julius Caeser. Historical motifs of important events and portraits of famous personalities became his life's work and still enjoy great popularity among art connoisseurs today. Unusually for a painter of his time, Selous was able to develop his creativity to the fullest at an early age, due to his success and the wealth and reputation of his family, and there were no limits to his creativity.

Henry Courtney Selous was born in London in 1803 into a wealthy and long-established family. His father was already a well-known painter of portraits and miniatures, which meant that Selous himself came into contact with art at an early age and was completely absorbed by it. His whole family was extremely art-loving, cosmopolitan and culturally open-minded, and Selous and his two siblings received a very liberal education in music, literature and painting from an early age. Selous' nephew was later to become a famous explorer and conservationist and his sister was to marry a popular writer. For Selous himself, it was not long before he entered the arts. At the age of 14 - seldom for those times - he was accepted into the renowned Royal Academy of Arts. It was here that Selous discovered his love of antiquity and history and his high level of artistry, which enabled him to win prizes and scholarships at an early age.

His talent to be able to illustrate the human body almost perfectly made him a sought-after painter and his works were exhibited internationally, including "Jerusalem in Her Grandeur", which received much recognition, especially in the USA. Further successful works, prizes and exhibitions followed and in 1843 he won a tender to design frescoes for the rebuilt Westminster Palace, the then and now political power centre of England. Due to his own success and the wealth of his family, Selous was able to do what many of his contemporaries lacked: to concentrate entirely on his art and create what he wanted to create at his whim. In his later years he concentrated more and more on illustrations of historical figures and events. His works on the opening of the Great Exhibition of Industrial Nations in London are among his best and most famous works. He also tried his hand as an author and published several books for children under a pseudonym. Henry Courtney Selous died in London in 1890, leaving his four children a considerable fortune and the art world an invaluable legacy. © Meisterdrucke
