Arthur Hughes (1832-1915)
This is another wonderful English Pre-Raphaelite painter. His
Ophelia below is just outstanding. I love the colors, tints and especially
the beautiful and delicate figure of Ophelia below.

"Hughes showed early artistic promise & enrolled in the Royal Academy
Antique School in 1847. He was encouraged by Millais, who was always an
affable individual. Hughes was inspired directly by The Germ, the
short-lived Pre-Raphaelite magazine. He attended PRB meetings, in rather
a junior hero-worshipping manner. Hughes was liked by the PRB, in fact he
was throughout his long life, a well liked individual. He was also
encouraged by Rossetti."
