Historical Artist - Arthur Hughes (1832 - 1915)

Arthur Hughes gained popularity as a painter and illustrator in the 1750’s. He was considered the most renowned of the Pre-Raphaelite supporters. His two paintings, April Love and The Long Engagement, are well known today for their strength in drawing and poetic color choice. Hughes’s work declined after 1870 and he withdrew from society for the remainder of his life. His works are noted for their magical, glowing colouring and delicate draughtsmanship. Hughes was in close contact with the writer George MacDonald and illustrated some of his books as well as producing numerous illustrations for Norman MacLeod's monthly magazine, Good Words. Hughes died in Kew Green, London, leaving about 700 known paintings and drawings, along with over 750 book illustrations.
