Joshua Anderson Hague is recognized as an important Victorian painter of scenery in the Welsh countryside. Anderson's landscape paintings were remarkable for their portrayal of the natural beauty surrounding the Conwy Valley, with picturesque skies, streams, fields, cottages and seascapes. He and his fellow artists were derided as the "Manchester School" because of their use of a palette knife to apply paint thickly on the canvas, instead of brushes.
