W.H. Allen was an English born artist who migrated to New Zealand in 1925 with compatriot R. N. Field to teach at the Dunedin School of Art.

After a stint as art master at the Nelson College, Allen returned to England in the late 1930s and consequently his reputation as a teacher and artist have previously been overlooked.
