John Herbert Evelyn Partington (1843-1899) was a painter in the Manchester School of Painters, which was founded in 1870 by
artists in Manchester, England who were disgruntled with the traditional Victorian art education they were receiving at the
Manchester Art School. Partington and his fellow painters were interested in painting and drawing from life and were strongly
influenced by French painting, especially the Pont-Aven School. J.H.E. Partington opened the Stockport Art School, modeled
on the Academie Julian in Paris, in the late 1880s.
