Henry Calvert (fl. 1798-1869) was born in Cork but moved to London after 1815 and resided in England until his death. He exhibited at the British institution and the Royal society of British Artists from 1827- 1844. Calvert mainly specialised in seascapes and landscapes. He worked for an archaeological journal and published a book titled ‘Lessons on Landscape, Colouring, Shadowing and Pencilling’.
Watercolours by Calvert are located in galleries such as the British Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, National Maritime Museum and the Walker Art Gallery. His artworks have sold in Christies and Bonhams auctions.
