    • Edward Hughes - Portrait of Mrs Florence Villiers with her son Algernon, full-length, seated together in a springtime garden landscape 
      Feb. 27, 2024

      Edward Hughes - Portrait of Mrs Florence Villiers with her son Algernon, full-length, seated together in a springtime garden landscape 

      Est: £1,200 - £1,800

      Edward Hughes,  British 1832-1908 Portrait of Mrs Florence Villiers with her son Algernon, full-length, seated together in a springtime garden landscape;  oil on canvas, signed and dated 'Edward Hughes/ 1897' (lower left), 158.5 x 118.3 cm.  Provenance:  By family descent from the sitters to the present owner.  Note:  Edward Hughes trained at the Royal Academy Schools, and exhibited widely throughout his prolific and successful career, including at the Royal Academy, The British Institute, and The Grosvenor Gallery. Hughes initially gained recognition for his genre pieces, which were reminiscent of the works of the Scottish painter Thomas Faed (1826-1900). Later in his career, he became renowned for his portraits of the aristocracy, which bore a striking resemblance to the ‘fancy’ pictures created by John Everett Millais (1829-1896). His early works were characterised by meticulous attention to detail, influenced by Millais and other members of the Pre-Raphaelite movement. As the century progressed, however, his paintings became increasingly opulent and lavish, reflecting the fashionable Impressionist style, which was popular with his Victorian sitters. These works featured vibrant tones, broader, looser strokes and emphasised the play of light on the fabrics and textures of his sitters’ clothes and the surrounding landscape, which is clearly visible in the portrait presented here.  Here, Hughes has depicted Florence Villiers, née Ricardo, and her son, Algernon Villiers, in a garden. During the nineteenth century, motherhood held a central place in the domestic ideal, and middle-class Victorian mothers dedicated more time to their children compared to previous generations. They engaged in play, education, and integrated their children into daily life within the household. In Hughes’s picture, Algernon holds a basket filled with freshly picked flowers, suggesting that mother and child may have spent the day exploring and learning in the garden.  A similar portrait by Hughes titled Portrait of Mrs. Drury Percy Wormald and her Son in an Autumnal Landscape sold at Christie’s New York in 2007 ($6,600).

      HUGHES, David Edward (1830-1900). Autograph letter signed to Latimer Clark. London, May 18, n.d. [between 1879 and 1886]. 3 1/4 pages. Provenance: Latimer Clark. Between 1879 and 1886 Hughes appears to have performed a series of experiments on wireless telegraphy that led to his discovery of the existence of electric waves in the air surrounding an electric spark (anticipating Hertz), and to his invention of an instrument for detecting them (anticipating Branly and Marconi). "In 1880 he [Hughes] gave a demonstration lasting three hours before the President, Spottiswood, and the Honorary Secretaries for the Royal Society, Huxley and Stokes; but they were unable to accept his contention that the results were to due to wave action and discouraged him from contributing a paper to the Society" (PMM 377). Perhaps as a result of this unfortunate demonstration, Hughes did not make his investigations public, and the only remaining evidence of them is in the letters he wrote during this period, including the present letter to Clark, which ends with the following postscript: "When you find time I will show you (in confidence) some experiments on aerial transmission which forces me to believe that induction is simply the result of polarization or rather a previous conduction--my time would be between 3 and 5 P.M.--but as I might be absent or engaged in some other experiment you had better name a day in advance so that I would be free--we can talk over this when we meet." The main body of Hughes's letter is concerned with an electrical experiment that Hughes had suggested Clark might perform before the Royal Society. The experiment was both costly and dangerous--Hughes described it as "an 'Electric Elephant' only to be done by a government grant--but a government grant would fail to do the work--it would fall into the hands of a committee and from this into a clique--and the clique would pocket the funds and do no real work..."
