Louis Bosworth Hurt art prints and posters

Hurt was a 19th Century artist who achieved great success by painting subject matter with which he felt a great affinity.

Born in Ashbourne, Derbyshire in 1856, he studied art under George Turner of Barrow-on-Trent. His inspiration, however, came from Highland landscapes in particular and, after exhibiting at the Royal Academy, he had built himself a reputation as a fine painter of Highland scenes and cattle. Hurt died in 1929.

As a measure of his popularity, when originally sold Hurt's painting of Highland Cattle reached a price of £65; today the price would be in tens of thousands of pounds!
