Expôs regularmente na Royal Academy e principais galerias de Londres e vendeu numerosas obras. Assinava frequentemente as suas aguarelas como Fred Hines. Ilustrou muitas obras, incluindo uma edição do Goldsmith "The Deserted Village", juntamente com Ernest Wilson.

    2. Hola Alexandra:
      It's an honour to find someone who loved Great-grandfather Fred's work. He was a kind and gentle man who focussed each morning by carrying an egg on a spoon to his studio.
      I am curious about how you first learned of him.

    3. Hello again, dear Cyn!

      First of all I must tell you that I'm a fan of every paintings or illustrations from the victorian times. As you can imagine your Great- grandfather is one of many painters at the time.
      In second, I don't know nothing about his work untill, by chance, one day I enter in the Illustration Archive, UK. Then I folow my instint and in the field TAGS ILLUSTRATIONS I start looking for victorian images and...in the following link:

      ....My mouth is open with the beauty of the works that illustrated books of poetry, religious, etc.

      After I'm wondering who was this man, and other sites make the rest, that is the information about his life.

      A big hug from Portugal

    where I've included images from my family's private collection.

    Lovely to have connected Canada to Portugal. ♡ Cyn

    1. Dear Cyn,

      I have no words to express my contentment for sharing this treasure which is the works of your great-grandfather, most of which were totally unknown to me. In particular, the one in which explains that the picture had been offered by the painter to one of its three daughters when she married with a Canadian soldier in 1918! A delight!! I love these stories that unite generations. I found out why you write love to connect Canada to Portugal. ;)
      As I also love genealogy, I was wondering why you tell me about Canada, if your great-grandfather was English? The reason is discovered !! ;)
      Thank you so much for this unexpected gift and whenever you want give me news, okay?

      Great hug from Portugal!!!
