Henry John Kinnaird was a painter of landscapes and river scenes who was born on 7 June in Old Church, St Pancras. In 1880, he was living in the Camden Town area of London and exhibited a number of works at the Royal Academy including: ‘The Tow Path near Henley’, ‘ The Thames near Pangbourne’ and ‘The Old Mill, Burnham, Essex’. He also exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists, the Royal Society of Artists, Birmingham and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters.
 
By 1887, he had moved to Chingford in Essex, and by 1908 he had made the move to Sussex where he lived in Arundel before finally settling in Ringmer near Lewes. Kinnaird painted in both watercolours and oils in a broad, naturalistic style similar to John Horace Hooper, however, during his lifetime he became a well-known watercolour artist. Although he painted harvest scenes in and around Surrey and Sussex, he specialised in river scenes such as this lovely example. He died on 26 February at Old Cottage, Ringmer in 1929.

Angelica Kauffman, RA (1741 - 1807)

was a Swiss-born Austrian Neoclassical painter who had a successful career in London and Rome. Though born as "Kauffmann", Kauffman is the preferred spelling of her name in English; it is the form she herself used most in signing her correspondence, documents and paintings.

While Kauffman produced many types of art, she identified herself primarily as a history painter, an unusual designation for a woman artist in the 18th century. History painting, was considered the most elite and lucrative category in academic painting during this time period. Under the direction of Sir Joshua Reynolds, the Royal Academy made a strong effort to promote history painting to a native audience who were more interested in commissioning and buying portraits and landscapes.

Despite the popularity that Kauffman enjoyed in British society and her success as an artist, she was disappointed by the relative apathy that the British had towards history painting. Ultimately she left Britain for the continent, where history painting was better established, held in higher esteem and patronized.

The works of Angelica Kauffman have retained their reputation. By 1911, rooms decorated with her work were still to be seen in various quarters. At Hampton Court was a portrait of the duchess of Brunswick; in the National Portrait Gallery, a self-portrait. There were other pictures by her at Paris, at Dresden, in the Hermitage at St Petersburg, in the Alte Pinakothek atMunich, in Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn (Estonia).

Satinwood

is a hard and durable wood with a satinlike sheen, much used in cabinetmaking, especially in marquetry. It comes from two tropical trees of the family Rutaceae (rue family). East Indian or Ceylon satinwood is the yellowish or dark-brown heartwood of Chloroxylon swietenia.

The lustrous, fine-grained, usually figured wood is used for furniture, cabinetwork, veneers, and backs of brushes. West Indian satinwood, sometimes called yellow wood, is considered superior. It is the golden yellow, lustrous, even-grained wood found in the Florida Keys and the West Indies.

It has long been valued for furniture. It is also used for musical instruments, veneers, and other purposes. Satinwood is classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Magnoliopsida, order Sapindales, family Rutaceae.
