H. Mark Anthony
Early Modern Painting
British, (active 1817–1886)
"Mark Anthony was born in Manchester and trained under his cousin, G.W. Anthony. Between 1834 and 1840 he lived in Paris and Fountainebleau where he became friendly with Corot and Dupre and was influenced by their work. He was one of the first English artists to bring the vision of the French school to England. He was mainly a landscape painter whose work was admired by Ford Maddox Brown and the pre-Raphaelites. He exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy between 1837 and 1854, showing such works as 'An Irish Peasant Awaiting Her Husband's Return', 'The Cornfield--Afternoon', and 'The Monarch Oak'.

"During the mid-1850s, Anthony became a member of the newly formed Photographic Society of London, and although he does not appear to have sent works to any of the photographic exhibitions, he contributed to the exchange of photographs in the 'Photographic Album for the Year 1857'. His photograph of a young girl with flowers, 'Wild Flowers', was made in the narrative style by the collodion process" (123).
