Edward Robert Hughes

Just noticed this:

Victoria Osborne is Curator (Fine Art) at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, specialising in nineteenth-century British art, particularly works on paper. She has been the organising curator of two major Pre-Raphaelite exhibitions, 'Love Revealed: Simeon Solomon and the Pre-Raphaelites' (BM&AG and Museum Villa Stuck, Munich 2005-6) and the current survey show 'The Poetry of Drawing: Pre-Raphaelite Designs, Studies and Watercolours' (BM&AG and Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, 2011). She is currently researching the life and work of the post Pre-Raphaelite watercolourist Edward Robert Hughes (1851-1914)

I have always loved this...sooo ethereal. And I continue to be intrigued by whatever that bird-like object she is holding - could that be a helmet of sorts? Any idea?

Dinah asks
Does anyone know where I can get a print of Fra Lippo Lippi by Hughes. Saw this in The Poetry of Drawing exhibition currently in BMAG and loved it.

Dinah are you sure that title is right? I haven't got the exhb catalogue but it doesn't ring any bells.
