Henry W. Herrick (1824-1906) was a talented wood engraver, book illustrator, and watercolorist. After spending his childhood in New Hampshire, Herrick began his career as an artist in New York, working for several prominent publishers and teaching at the School of Design for Women. In 1865, he returned to Manchester where he continued to work as a designer and engraver and took up the art of watercolor.
In conjunction with the special exhibition on Henry Herrick at the Millyard Museum, MHA Executive Director Jeff Barraclough will talk about the life and career of Henry Herrick in this illustrated talk.
