George Elgar Hicks
Hicks first studied medicine and later switched to painting. For this reason he attended the art school of Bloomsbury from 1843 and switched to the Royal Academy of Arts in London the following year . In 1855 he achieved his artistic breakthrough with his painting Horch, the Lark, Sings at the Gate of Heaven .
Hick's pictures can be assigned to genre painting and almost exclusively show scenes from popular life. Lt. Meyer's Konversations-Lexikon are the pictures "... of deep sensation and excellent effect of the coloring, but in the drawing often fleeting and not without errors".
