From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Frederick Yeates Hurlstone (1800 - 10 June 1869), English painter, was born in London. His father was a proprietor of the Morning Chronicle, and his granduncle, Richard Hurlstone, was a well-known portrait-painter a generation earlier.

Hurlstone studied under Sir W Beechey, Sir T Lawrence and BR Haydon, and in 1820 became a student at the Royal Academy, where he soon began to exhibit. In 1823 he won the Academy's gold medal for historical painting. In 1831 he was elected to the Society of British Artists, of which in 1835 he became president; it was to their exhibitions that he sent most of his picture, as he became a pronounced critic of the management of the Academy.

His historical paintings and portraits were numerous. Some of the most representative are:

  • A Venetian Page (1824)
  • The Enchantress Armida (1831)
  • Eros (1836)
  • Prisoner of Chillon (1837)
  • Girl of Sorrento (1847)
  • Boabdil (1854)
  • and his portrait of the 7th Earl of Cavan (1833).

Hurlstone's son, William Martin Yeates Hurlstone, became a moderately well-known composer.
