- A painter and printmaker born in London on April 8, 1794. Son of the Swiss watchmaker Henry Berthoud Sr. (q.v.) and Ann Wiswall of London. Associated with his father's publishing company in the Regent's Quadrant, Piccadilly, from the early 1820s, initially as a printmaker and then as full partner. After the company went bankrupt in 1828, and following a short stay in the Fleet Prison, Henry Jr. moved to Paris where he continued as a printmaker and painter. He divided his time between London (exhibition in Suffolk Street, 1846) and Paris (paintings exhibited at the Salon, 1843-1849) where he died on September 25, 1864. He married twice, first to Marianne Flieguer in London in 1818 and then, after her premature death in 1822 (perhaps in childbirth), to (Victoire-) Elisabeth Chomel (d. 1848) in Paris in 1844. His only child, Maria (b. 1821), from his first marriage, also died prematurely in 1836.
All works signed 'H. Berthoud', 'Hri Berthoud', 'Berthould' and 'L. Berthoud' are catalogued under his name in the IFF.
Not to be confused with Henry Berthoud Sr., nor Auguste Henri Berthoud (1829-87) (q.v.), painter and pupil of Ary Scheffer, nor Alfred Henri Berthoud (1848-1906) (q.v.), pupil of Gérôme.
