The first exhibition dedicated to this talented yet lesser-known Pre-Raphaelite artist.
Studio assistant to Holman-Hunt, model to Rossetti and the painter behind the 'blue pictures', ER Hughes was at the centre of the Pre-Raphaelite circle. While his paintings remain much-loved today, his name is mysteriously unknown.
Hughes created fantastical story-led work and would often experiment with ambitious techniques. But he was also a perfectionist, producing multiple studies for each of his paintings. This exhibition brings together a series of his most impressive works, many of which haven't been seen in the 100 years since his death.
