Robert Hughes was born in London in 1934, and moved to Wiltshire in 1981. Robert started painting professionally
in 1982 without ever having received any formal training. his first exhibition in Marlborough, UK soon gained him a reputation in the art world.
Like many artists, he would listen to classical music whilst painting, a combination which helped him produce some
of the finest miniatures available today. The detail on Robert's painting was achieved without the aid of a
magnifying glass, but he used up to twelve brushes for each one. He mostly worked in oil but varied his media
with gouache and watercolour. The palette he used was based on eight earth colours, such as yellow ochre
and burnt sienna, plus black and white. Once he painted the main scene he would add figures and animals.
He was a full member of the Royal Miniature Society, a member of the Hilliard Society of Miniaturists and
a member of the Society of Limners. He has contributed to books and videos on painting in miniature. He and his partner Elizabeth Johnson published a book called "How to Paint Miniatures"
Robert exhibited in various places including the Medici Gallery in London. His work is always available
at Grimes House Gallery. Robert's work has been amongst the most popular we have ever sold in the gallery;
we had a long and successful working relationship with Robert selling over 2000 of his paintings.
Robert Hughes died in April 2010.
