Henry Yeend King studied at Heatherleys Art School. In 1879 Henry Yeend King was elected to the Royal Society of British Artists and in 1886 he was elected to the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, of which he later became Vice-President.

The Times obituary of 12 June 1924 wrote:

"Mr Henry John King, Vice President of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours died in London ... His experience of French art - particularly the influence of the Realist and Impressionist schools informed King's mature stlye. So although his rustic genre scenes are typically Victorian, his technique of working in plein-air and infusing his scenes with bold and often surprising colours - shows the influence of French art".

Yeend King had a long and successful career, with many exhibitions in London, Europe and the USA, wining medals in Paris, Berlin and Chicago. His landscapes are of rural idylls with pretty farm girls (often using his daughter, Lilian, as a model). He was sometimes referred to as 'Milkmaid' for his use of girls in his paintings.

He was also a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Oil-Colours and was a frequent exhibitor at all the major exhibition halls; showing 115 works at the RBA, 38 at the RI and 94 at the Royal Academy.
