Later Victorian Portraits Catalogue
Henry Stacy Marks (1829-1898), Painter
Marks’s memoirs, Pen & Pencil Sketches, confirm his reputation as a congenial personality and important member of the St John’s Wood community, where he lived from 1862.  He enjoyed clowning, comic songs and preaching bogus sermons; but he disliked being referred to as a comic artist. G.D. Leslie noted that ‘gravity was the prevailing tone of Marco’s character’ and he is described as ‘high-spirited but prone to moods of melancholy and misanthropy’.
