William Frederick Hulk was born in London and was part of the famous Hulk family of painters, his father being the marine and canal scene artist Abraham Hulk Senior (1813-1897). He was one of the most prominent exponents of using animals to provide a focal point for his rural landscapes. From 1882 he lived in Shere, near Guildford, and painted mainly in Surrey. His primary subjects were rustic landscapes with cattle and sheep and was at his best with small scale paintings. Starting in 1875, Hulk exhibited frequently at the Royal Academy (52 pictures), Royal Society of British Artists (43 paintings), Suffolk Street and at the New Water-Colours Society in London plus various Art Galleries around the provinces including Liverpool, Birmingham and Manchester.
