Frederick Daniel Hardy (1826-1911) | Genre painter






Frederick Daniel Hardy was an British genre painter🎨 and member of the Cranbrook Colony of artists.
Frederick Daniel Hardy was born at Windsor in Berkshire, the third of eight children of George Hardy (1795-1877) and his wife Sarah (1803-1872).
George Hardy was a horn player in the Private Band of Music of the Royal Households of George IV, Queen Adelaide and Queen Victoria.


Frederick's father was also an amateur artist, taught by James Duffield Harding and Edmund Bristow. F.D. Hardy's ancestors were from Horsforth in Yorkshire; Gathorne Gathorne-Hardy, First Earl of Cranbrook, was his second cousin.
Frederick enrolled at the Royal Academy of Music, Hanover Square, at the age of seventeen.
He studied for about three years, but finally abandoned music to become an artist like his elder brother George Hardy (1822-1909).
Hardy soon became a skilful painter of cottage interiors, but was continually improving his figure painting throughout the 1850s.
In 1851 Hardy had his first two pictures accepted for exhibition at the Royal Academy.
Hardy's painting in the 1850s was influenced by the works of 17th Dutch artists🎨, such as Pieter de Hooch🎨 and Nicolaes Maes🎨, and by the paintings of his friend Thomas Webster.
Throughout the decade Hardy gradually included a few figures into his pictures of interiors.
And in 1859 he painted his first picture, "The Foreign Guest", that has a narrative involving a larger group of people, and is similar to much of his best work in the 1860s.


Hardy exhibited ninety-three pictures at the Royal Academy from 1851-1898.
The sale prices of his paintings were at their peak in the 1870s; in 1877 "A Quartette Party" (1872) and "A Wedding Breakfast" (1871) were each sold for £798 at Christie's.
From the mid-1870s the Hardys maintained a house in London, at 17 Brunswick Gardens in Kensington, as well as their house in Cranbrook.
Frederick Daniel Hardy died at Cranbrook in April 1911 and was buried beside his wife in St Dunstan's churchyard.
Frederick Daniel Hardy's work is to be found in numerous public collections, notably at the Wolverhampton Art Gallery which holds nineteen of his paintings. | © Wikipedia










Frederick Daniel Hardy era un pittore di genere Inglese e membro della Colonia di Artisti Cranbrook.
Frederick Daniel Hardy è nato a Windsor nel Berkshire, il terzo di otto figli di George Hardy (1795-1877) e sua moglie Sarah (1803-1872).
George Hardy suonava il corno nella banda musicale privata delle famiglie reali di Giorgio IV, la regina Adelaide e la regina Vittoria.
Federico si iscrisse alla Royal Academy of Music, a Hannover Square, all'età di diciassette anni.
Studiò per circa tre anni, ma alla fine ha abbandonato la musica per diventare un artista come suo fratello maggiore George Hardy (1822-1909).
Hardy divenne ben presto un abile pittore di interni di cottage, ma migliorò continuamente la sua pittura di figura nel corso degli anni 1850.


Nel 1851 Hardy fece accettare le sue prime due tele alla Royal Academy.
La pittura di Hardy nel 1850 fu influenzata dalle opere di artisti olandesi del XVII secolo, come Pieter de Hooch🎨 e Nicolaes Maes🎨, e dai dipinti del suo amico Thomas Webster.
Nel corso del decennio, Hardy ha gradualmente incluso alcune figure nelle sue opere di interni.
Hardy espose novantatre tele alla Royal Academy dal 1851-1898.
I prezzi di vendita dei suoi dipinti erano al culmine negli anni 1870; nel 1877 "A Quartette Party" (1872) ed "A Wedding Breakfast" (1871) furono venduti ciascuno per £ 798 da Christie's.
A partire dalla metà del 1870, gli Hardy mantennero una casa a Londra, ai 17 Brunswick Gardens di Kensington, così come la loro casa a Cranbrook.
Frederick Daniel Hardy morì a Cranbrook nell'aprile del 1911 e fu sepolto accanto a sua moglie nel cimitero di St Dunstan.
Le opere di Frederick Daniel Hardy si trovano in numerose collezioni pubbliche, in particolare alla Wolverhampton Art Gallery che ospita diciannove dei suoi dipinti.
