Abraham Hulk the Younger was a British artist known for his charming paintings of the English countryside. The son of famed maritime painter, Abraham Hulk the Elder, he was taught by his father. The younger Hulk developed a realistic approach to landscapes, displaying sensitivity to light and color on his canvases. Born in 1851 in the Netherlands, the artist spent the majority of his life working in England and depicting its environs, though he did travel back to his native country periodically. Before his death in 1922 in Nottingham, United Kingdom, he garnered acclaim for his pastoral scenes through exhibitions in London at the Royal Academy and Royal Society of British Artists.
