Claude Hayes RI, ROI (Landscape Artist and Portraitist) (1852-1922)

Born in Dublin just prior to the family's move to London, the son of the renowned marine artist Edwin Hayes, Claude showed an early interest in drawing without ever receiving encouragement from Hayes senior.  In about 1867, a family row caused him to run away to sea, after which he spent a year in the United States. Returning to England, he studied at Heatherley's Academy and also the Royal Academy Schools, where he absorbed the prevailing style of Romanticism.

Like several other Irish artists of his generation, he also studied at Antwerp under Charles Verlat. He began exhibiting at the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1874, going on to contribute a total of 21 paintings. In addition, from 1876, he showed at the Royal Academy in London - something he continued to do for more than 40 years.

Always a fast painter, he began as a portraitist in oils before specializing in landscapes, first in oils, and then in his favorite watercolours.  From 1884, he exhibited the first of 200 works with the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours.  In due course, he was elected a Member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, as well the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours.  He continued to exhibit in various venues in London and Belfast, although in later life he suffered from failing health and lack of money. 

Examples of his work are in the Victoria and Albert Museum (London), the Ulster Museum (Belfast), the Leeds City Art Gallery and the Sargeant Gallery in New Zealand, to name but a few collections.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

A Dublin-born landscape and portrait painter, Claude Hayes was the son of maritime artist Edwin Hayes (q.v.).  He received little to no encouragement however, from his father, and at an early age ran away to sea.

On his return to England he trained at Heatherley's in London and at the Royal Academy* School, where he stayed for three years.  He later studied under Charles Verlat (1824-1890) in Antwerp.

Hayes first showed at the Royal Hibernian Academy* in 1874 and presented there a total of twenty-one works.  In 1876 he exhibited at the RA - a connection that lasted 40 years.

He was elected to membership of the RI in 1886 and the ROI in 1883.  He is best remembered for his pastoral scenes, with their softly diffused light and neat lines of haystacks.  His work is in various public collections in England and Ireland including the Ulster Museum and the Leeds City Art Gallery.
