Summary

E.R.Hughes - Portrait of an elderly Lady

English painter Robert Edward Hughes is considered a Pre-Raphaelite although he had a flair for symbolism. Meticulous in detail, his watercolor landscapes displayed Pre-Raphaelite techniques that showcased literary themes including nude female subjects with long tresses, a trait which leaned towards symbolism. Always meticulous in his portrayal of nudes, Hughes became somewhat of an expert and achieved international recognition at the Venice Biennale (1895) for ‘Biancabella and Samaritana’. One of his most famous nudes is titled ‘Weary Moon’ (c1900)
