Henrik Gronvold, (1858-194) was a Danish naturalist and artist. From an early age, he developed an interest in natural history and spent his time drawing the birds and animals around him. In his early years he studied drawing in Copenhagen, Denmark.

In 1892, Gronvold left for America by way of England. It was in London that he landed a job preparing bird skeletons for the Natural History Museum. There he developed skill as a taxidermist and established his reputation as an artist. In 1895, Gronvold joined an expedition to the Savage islands, returning later to continue as an artist at the Musem.

By the end of the century, Gronvold’s work was well represented in scientific literature. He also produced plates of bird eggs, which were quite unusual and rarely found in early bird books.
