Orlando Norie Biography
He was a painter of military subjects, he was perhaps the most prolific painter of the British army in the 19th century along with Richard Simkin. Although his family were of Scottish descent, they had moved to the continent, and Orlando was born in Bruges, Belgium on January 15, 1832. He spent most of his working life in Dunkirk where he painted many scenes, primarily in watercolor by the firm of Rudolf Ackermann.
