Biography:

Henry C. Gritten (1818-873)

Gritten was an English born Australian artist.

He was the son of a London picture dealer. He studied art and was on friendly terms with David Roberts and other leading artists of the period. He began exhibiting at the Royal Academy in 1835, and during the next 10 years 12 of his pictures were hung at its exhibitions. He was a more frequent exhibitor at the British Institution, and had 30 of his pictures hung there between 1836 and 1848. In 1848 Gritten went to the United States living in Brooklyn and exhibited at the American Art Union (1850 to 1851) and the National Academy of Design (1850 to 1854). Gritten painted two New Hampshire scenes which were exhibited at the National Academy of Design: Kearsarge Mountain (1850) and Recollection of New Hampshire Scenery (1851). In 1853 Gritten arrived in Australia, initially trying prospecting at the Bendigo goldfields, but soon resumed painting in Victoria and Tasmania. A View of Hobart (1857) by Gritten hangs at the National Library of Australia at Canberra. He was represented at the first exhibition of the Victorian Academy of Art held at Melbourne in 1870.

He died suddenly at Melbourne leaving a widow and four children in poor circumstances.
