Edward Robert Hughes, Painter, albumen carte-de-viste, 1870s, by Maull & Co., NPG
One of my favorite painters whose paintings are instantly recognizable and seen worldwide! You may not know the name but you definitely love his paintings...Trust me...we all do! Edward Robert Hughes was a nineteenth-century painter living at St. Albans, Hertfordshire, England. He was the nephew of another brilliant painter, also elusive, named Arthur Hughes. Edward for a brief time worked as studio assistant to Pre-Raphaelite painter, William Holman-Hunt.

Everyone loves his paintings and have seen them on book covers, greeting cards, etc. So, on to the current exhibit now running through 6th of May, 2014. TWO WEEKS ONLY go visit this exhibit and see such beauty up-close. I only wish I could. At St. Albans Cathedral in Hertfordshire, England you will find The Last Pre-Raphaelite: Edward Robert Hughes Exhibition.
