Hubert von Herkomer

May 26, 1849 - Mar 31, 1914

Sir Hubert von Herkomer CVO RA was a German-born British painter, and also a pioneering film-director and composer. Though a very successful portraitist, especially of men, he is mainly remembered for his earlier works that took a realistic approach to the conditions of life of the poor. Hard Times showing the distraught family of a travelling day-labourer at the side of a road, is probably one of his best known works.
