From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Harry Payne (1858 – 1927) was an English military artist.



With his brother, Arthur C. Payne, he produced many series of oilette postcards for Raphael Tuck & Sons and also did extensive work for Gale and Polden producing illustrations for their postcard series along with other military artists including Edgar A. Holloway, John McNeill, and Ernest Ibbetson.

In 1898 he and his brother Arthur created a series of chromolithographic and lithographic illustrations for an edition of Robert Browning's The Pied Piper of Hamelin.


His 1901 painting of the Royal Horse Guards crossing Horse Guards Parade was sold at Bonhams in 2007 for over £50,000[1].
