Augustus E. Mulready - Little Flower Sellers

oil on canvas
Augustus was the grandson of William Mulready. He was a genre painter and a member of the Cranbrook Colony and did works drawing attention to the poor. But at this time they still had to be 'pretty' for public consumption, rather than realistic. Noti=ce the posters, including the Queen's Jubilee of 1877.
active 1863 - 1905.
