Michael Angelo Hayes

1820-1877 Ireland/Watercolours

 

Brief Biography-Michael Angelo Hayes was born in Waterford in 1820. His father, Edward Hayes, taught him, and he studied at the Royal Hibernian Academy. The Academy elected him in 1854, and Hayes became secretary two years later. He concentrated on horses and military subjects and also exhibited in London at the New Society of Water-colours. He painted in oils, but some of his more outstanding paintings were in watercolour. His most famous works were the series of six Charles Bianconi horse-drawn travelling cars. He sadly died by drowning in 1877.
