From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ernest William Haslehust (12 Nov 1866 - 3 July 1949)[1] was an English landscape painter and book illustrator specialising in watercolours.

Haslehust was born in Walthamstow in Essex (now part of Greater London,) and studied at the Slade School of Fine Art in London under Alphonse Legros. He was a member of a number af artistic and scientific societies (including the RI, RBA, RWA and RBC) and exhibited regularly at many venues including the Royal Academy. He also designed posters for the LNER and LMS railway companies, and his art featured in many magazines of the day including the Illustrated London News and The Tatler.

He was a prolific painter of British landscapes in watercolor and is perhaps best remembered for illustrating 36 volumes of the well-known "Beautiful England" series of travel books published by Blackie and Son Limited (see titles below).
