Artist biography Benedict Angell Hyland 1859 - 1933 was a British painter who was born in 1859, the artist died in 1933.
He was was born in Hastings, Sussex, England in 1859 and he became an artist, specialising in animal, particularly dog, portraits. He moved around a lot but eventually settled in London Road, Forest Hill, Lewisham (SE London) from around 1902. The spelling of his middle name is " Angell". He had a store in London specializing in art restoration and was once robbed (September 1907) by three teenage boys of hundreds of post cards. In 1911 he called himself a picture framer rather than artist (as he did as a 23 year old). Perhaps his shop was his bread and butter by then... and hence the change but associated occupation. His father likewise gave variations on merchant from coal to china!
Benedict taught at the Camberwell School of Art. He spent several years in Paris where he had a picture exhibited in the Paris Salon. In the 1890s he was restoring the pictures of the Duke of Portland at Welbeck Abbey. In 1933 Benedict fell under a train at Sydenham Station. It was thought he committed suicide because he was depressed at having to close down his Fine Art business. Benedict's parents were Walter George Hyland and Frances Lucy Angell. Benedict's siblings were -1860 Edward , 1862 Agnes Rosina d.1888, 1863 Harry d.1865, 1865 Elizabeth d.1865, 1879 Nellie Benedict Angell Hyland married Beatrice Irene Selby in Hampstead in 1913. They had one daughter in 1931; Rosalind Violet Eleanor Hyland (deceased). Ref sources afghanhoundtimes, Bonhams.
