The landscapes of internationally renowned artist E. J. Hughes reveal a striking lifelong devotion to beauty and realism in art.
Hughes was born in North Vancouver in 1913. His formal art training took place at The Vancouver School of Decorative and Applied Art.
Hughes was made an official Army artist in World War II, and he served in Canada, England and Alaska. After the war, determined to be a full-time artist, Hughes and his wife Fern moved to Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island. There he was discovered by Dr. Max Stern, a noted Canadian and European art authority. His work is in the Canadian National Art Gallery and many more prstigious gallery collections
The high quality limited edition giclee prints on canvas are a wonderful new addition to E. J. Hughes work. They are small editions of 200 and are a wise investment.
