Biography   George Elgar Hicks


George Elgar Hicks was an English painter during the Victorian era. He is best known for his large genre paintings, which emulate William Powell Frith in style, but he was also a society portraitist.

Born on 13 March 1824 in Lymington, Hampshire, George Elgar Hicks was the second son of a wealthy magistrate. His parents encouraged Hicks to become a doctor, and so Hicks studied medicine at University College from 1840 to 1842. However, after three years' "ardous and disagreeable study," Hicks decided he wanted to be an artist. Due to these circumstances, Hicks began training considerably later in life than most artists of the time. In 1843, Hicks attended Sass's Academy, and by 1844 he had entered the Royal Academy Schools.
