JUTSUM, HENRY (1816–1869), painter, born in London in 1816, was educated in Devonshire. There he acquired a taste for landscape painting, and on returning to London, drew from nature, frequently in Kensington Gardens. He first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1836. Three years later he became a pupil of James Stark [q. v.] He devoted himself for some time to watercolour painting, and in 1843 was elected a member of the New Watercolour Society. He continued, however, to exhibit at the Royal Academy, and preferring painting in oil, resigned his membership of the Watercolour Society. He was a frequent contributor to the chief exhibitions up to his death, and his works were always greatly admired. 'The Noonday Walk' in the Royal Collection was engraved for 'The Art Journal'; 'The Foot Bridge' is in the South Kensington Museum. Jutsum's drawings were chiefly of English scenery. He died at Hamilton Terrace, St. John's Wood, 3 March 1869. Many of his own drawings in his possession and others collected by him were sold by auction at Christie's on 17 April 1882.
