Henry Emden and William Lewis Telbin were both scenic artists (and designers) for the theatre.

I’m not having much luck finding any paintings by the two gentlemen. To make thing a little confusing, there are 2 “William Telbin” – father and son, and both scene artists. The father was born around 1813 and died in 1873, so he didn’t do any Zulu War painting. He apparently did quite a few others and there are some on the internet.
William Telbin ( Jr.) was born in 1846 and died 1931. He has one painting that I could find. It is called “Damascas” and can be found at the link below. You may have to scroll down a bit.
