Louis B. Hurt

Louis Bosworth Hurt       1856 - 1929

     Hurt was born in Ashbourne in north Derbyshire in England. He was a student of George Turner who was known as Derbyshire's John Constable and their paintings have similar styles. Hurt and his wife, Harriet, lived in Derbyshire where they kept Highland cattle. Hurt is renowned for his paintings of these cattle and studies he made of highland cattle in Scotland. He also painted near Bettwys-y-Coed where he had a second home, which is next to Snowdonia National Park in North Wales.

     Hurt exhibited many times at the Royal Academy in the late nineteenth century as well as exhibiting and holding exhibitions provincially. A museum in Bournemouth holds a large collection of his paintings as it was founded by one of Hurt's patrons. Hurt also has paintings in the South African National collection, in Reading, Manchester, Rotherham and Sheffield. He is loved and collected in many parts of the UK and the US as well as many other parts of the world.  Paintings that he originally sold for only a few pounds have since sold for well over $100,000.
