A retrospective on one of BC’s most famous artists that features beautifully reproduced landscape paintings from all over mainland BC, and unveils new photographs, sketches, and ephemera from the artist’s estate.

E. J. Hughes (1913–2007) is British Columbia’s best-loved landscape painter. His lavish, picturesque views of the province are appreciated by art professionals and the public alike.

Following the success of his previous volume, E. J. Hughes Paints Vancouver Island, author and artist Robert Amos tracks the footsteps of Hughes as he travelled throughout mainland British Columbia, from Stanley Park to Savary Island, from the Fraser Valley to the Okanagan, and from the Kootenays to the Rockies between the 1930s and 1970s.

Working the with Estate of E. J. Hughes, Amos has crafted a nuanced representation of the activities and life of this exceptionally talented and private man. Both biography and monograph, this book features full-page, full-colour reproductions of Hughes’s finest paintings, many of them published here for the first time. Each painting is accompanied by supporting sketches, drawings, and photographs from Hughes’s personal archive.

Robert Amos has published eight books on art, including E. J. Hughes Paints Vancouver Island, and was the arts columnist for Victoria’s Times Colonist newspaper for more than thirty years. He was elected to the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts in 1995 and is an Honorary Citizen of Victoria. He now lives in Oak Bay with his wife, artist and author Sarah Amos.
