Edwin Hayes

1819-1904 Anglo Irish/Marine Artist

 

Brief Biography-Edwin Hayes was the son of a Dublin hotelier and publican from Bristol. He studied at the Dublin Society's Schools. As a devoted marine painter, Hayes sailed as a cabin boy to America to experience the sea and procured a yacht to sail Irish coastlines. He exhibited at the Royal Hibernian Academy up until he left for London in 1852. Hayes ventured throughout Europe, visiting ports and painting many seascapes. In England, he showed at the Royal Academy and several other art establishments. He became a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours in 1863, and the RHA admitted him in 1871. His sailing experience is evident in his depictions of seascapes. He died in Bayswater, London, in 1904.
