English naturalism produced its most famous and significant painters from the middle of the 19th century. This art era remains so interesting, especially in relation to England, because the painters assigned to it painted on a millennium threshold. One of these threshold painters was Henry Herbert La Thangue. His path and biography are characteristic of many British painters of his generation: These artists rediscover nature, rural light and village life as a genre motif at a time when industrialization meant that the so-called simple country life in its classic form Form changed significantly, if not, in the course of industrialization, literally dissolved here and there. The Frenchman Paul Cézanne , who, born a little earlier, went his own way as a painter, but prepared Impressionism, says: "You have to hurry to see something else."

This saying also exemplifies the mood and basic feeling of the English naturalists and one of his great representatives Henry Herbert La Thangue. Saying goodbye to old slownesses, running into the era of mobility, which was so unfamiliar at the time, into the new and increasing urbanization and industrialization, led many painters to suddenly have to look back into the open unspoilt nature, but this was easy to do derogatory-sounding word idyll in the sense of the cozy and Biedermeier style does not do justice. All these painters were too restless, too searching, too reflective and above all: too interested in the developments of their time, including photography and their new and clear way of portraying the world.

Henry Herbert La Thangue was born in 1859, exactly at a time when the first industrial revolution in technology, including steam engines, railways and factories, had brought about its great blossoming of development with all the new upheavals and social and landscape changes and upheavals that came with it went along with this revolution. Talented, he soon belonged to the elite of English painters, albeit often in opposition to the established Royal Academie, to which a competing "New English Art Club" had been founded, in whose environment he became an influential personality.

In 1890, at the age of 31, Henry Herbert La Thangue completed a picture entitled "Leaving Home". It shows a peasant woman crying because she has to move to the city to serve. If one considers that it is handed down how such a motif with a socially critical and time-commenting intention sparked "controversy" at the time, then one suspects how much painters and naturalists in England at the end of the 19th century were by no means just idyllic, instead contemporaries interested in their presence, critical and alert.

Henry Herbert La Thangue, who had spent a long time in France and spent the last years of his life in rural Italy, died in 1929 where he was born - in the big city of London. © Meisterdrucke
