Description

A retrospective on one of BC’s most famous artists that features beautifully reproduced landscape paintings from all over mainland BC, and unveils new photographs, sketches, and ephemera from the artist’s estate.

E. J. Hughes (1913–2007) is British Columbia’s best-loved landscape painter. His unashamedly picturesque views of the province are appreciated by art professionals and the public alike.

Following the success of his previous volume, E. J. Hughes Paints Vancouver Island, author and artist Robert Amos now follows the footsteps of the artist as Hughes travelled throughout mainland British Columbia from Stanley Park to Savary Island, from Fraser Valley to the Okanagan, and from the Kootenays to the Rockies between the 1930s and 1970s.

Working the with Estate of E. J. Hughes, Amos has created a nuanced representation of the activities and life of this extraordinarily talented and very private man. Both biography and monograph, this book features full-page, full-colour reproductions of Hughes’s finest paintings, many of them published here for the first time. Each painting is accompanied by supporting sketches, drawings, and photographs from Hughes’s personal archive.
