Biography and informationEdit
English illustrator and painter, who wrote in the style of pre-Raphaelite. The most famous paintings by Arthur Hughes are “April Love” (English April Love, 1855–56, Tate Gallery, London) and “Long Engagement” (English The Long Engagement).
He studied at the Royal Academy of Arts and discovered the Pre-Raphaelites, reading the magazine “Rostock”. At the beginning of his creative career, Hughes was heavily influenced by Milles, and, like him, he portrayed Ophelia (for example, Ophelia, 1851–53, Manchester Art Gallery, Manchester) and painted pictures dedicated to the works of John Keats. Later, Arthur Hughes illustrated some books by George McDonald. In total, he left behind about 700 paintings and sketches, as well as more than 750 illustrations.
