Edward Robert Hughes (Born in 1851) was an English painter who worked in a style influenced by Aestheticism and Pre-Raphaelitism. Some of his best known works are Night With Her Train of Stars and Midsummer Eve. He often used watercolor/gouache. Robert began painting at an early age under the guidance of his uncle, Arthur Hughes who was also a great artist. Robert also worked as a studio assistant to William Holman Hunt. He was a perfectionist and experimented with ambitious techniques; he did numerous studies for many of his paintings. Some of these paintings turned out to be good enough for exhibition. As William Holman Hunt’s assistance, Robert helped the increasingly infirm with the version of The Lady of Shallot and The Light of the World. Robert’s works can be seen in public collections including the Harris Museum & Art Gallery, Bradford Museums and Galleries, Maidstone Museum, the National Trust for Scotland, Cambridge & County Folk Museum, Kensington & Chelsea Local Studies, Bruce Castle Museum, Birmingham Art Gallery, Preston, and the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. Robert attended the Royal Academy Schools, where became close friends with Charles Fairfax Murray, a reputable collector, painter, and dealer. Robert was a perfectionist and was known for the many of his Pre-Raphaelite Shakespearean-themed works. He conducted conscientiously meticulous studies for his works of art. Today, framed Edward Robert Hughes art can be found in many public collections of art around the UK, including Birmingham Art Gallery, the Harris Museum and Art Gallery, Cambridge and County Folk Museum, Oxford, and Bruce Castle Museum.
