Henry Nelson O'Neil, ARA (1817-1880)

Born in Saint Petersburg, O’Neil moved to England with his family at the age of six. In 1836 he entered the Royal Academy Schools and began exhibiting at the RA from 1838. With Richard Dadd and W. P. Frith, he became a member of the ‘Clique', a group of young artists based in St John's Wood, dissatisfied with the traditionalist methods of the Academy.
