Henry Andrews (1816 – 1898) is known for illustration, landscape, and expedition art. He was born in Lambeth, England and was active in both United Kingdom and United States. Early in life, he was educated to be an engineer. In 1837 Andrews accompanied Richard W.H. on an archaeological expedition to Egypt. He served as an illustrator and engineer for Richard’s 3-volume Operations Carried on at the Pyramids of Gizeh. His work was also featured in The Crystal Palace, and its Contents. By 1840 he was an active book illustrator, and began exhibiting in the same year. Seven years later he was a staff member of the Illustrated London News. He was elected a member of the Old Watercolor Society in 1856. Later Andrews became the Royal Navy Artist and, at the peak of his career, he accompanied the Prince of Wales on a tour of Canada.

Uno Langmann Limited in Vancouver acquired a large-format watercolor painted by Andrews after it surfaced in a collection in Eastern Canada. The painting was showing the Hero, the prince’s ship, entering Quebec City. Subsequently, the painting, which was estimated to be worth about $300,000, was sold and currently resides in a permanent collection in Canada. Langmann says no one can really put a value on something like this painting because it is absolutely priceless. Langmann’s gallery specializes in North American and European paintings from the 18th to the early 20th centuries. Andrews other pieces of artwork are much sought after by other collectors who put high price tag on them.
