Louis Bosworth Hurt was a landscape painter from Derbyshire who exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1881 and 1901. He also exhibited at Suffolk Street. Hurt’s subjects were mainly highland scenes with cattle.
Amongst the many titles that he exhibited at the Royal Academy were “In a Northern Glen”, “The Silence of the Woods” and “By Peaceful Loch and Mist-Wreathed Hill”.
Hurt sought for and achieved purity of form in the more broken and undulating highland landscape. His is an important and distinguished interpretation, which he occasionally exaggerates, perhaps, but by means of which he succeeds in rendering a few timeless moments of nature.
Works by Hurt can be found in many museums and art galleries including the Reading Museum.
