Edward Robert Hughes Art Prints

Edward Robert Hughes, (5 November 1851 – 23 April 1914) was a well-loved English painter who worked in a style influenced by Pre-Raphaelitism and Aestheticism. His best known works are 'Midsummer Eve' and 'Night With Her Train of Stars'. Hughes was the nephew of Arthur Hughes and was also an assistant to William Holman Hunt. He helped Hunt with the version of 'The Light of the World' that is now in St. Paul's Cathedral. He often used watercolour/gouache in a fashion that one would label expert. He was elected ARWS in 1891 and for his election to full membership, he chose a mystical piece inspired by a verse by Christina Rossetti, 'Amor Mundi'. Technically, Hughes experimented with techniques considered quite ambitious, in his day. He was a perfectionist who did numerous studies which, in their own right, turned out to be more than good enough to be appreciated in exhibition.
