The artists was the son of William Hughes, still-life painter, and father to Blair Hughes-Stanton, engraver and illustrator. He was awarded gold medals at the Paris Salon (1907 and 1908) and knighted in 1923.
His association with St Ives, noted by Whybrow, was as a distinguished visitor to the area, most probably to visit friends.
