An English etcher, engraver, illustrator and painter, Alfred Hugh Fisher was educated at the University College Schools, Lambeth School and South Kensington, and then concluded his formal studies in Paris, under Laurens and Constant. Concentrating mostly upon original printmaking and illustration, Alfred Hugh Fisher was appointed as an artist to the Visual Instruction Committee of the Colonial Office, which gave him opportunity to travel extensively throughout the British Empire and elsewhere. Etchings and drypoints of New Zealand, India, Burma, Hungary, France and England were published in London by Greatorex in signed editions of forty to one hundred impressions. A. Hugh Fisher was also an accomplished etcher and engraver of portraits, figure studies and animal depictions. Many of Alfred Hugh Fisher's engravings were created in a series form. These include his twenty-one views of Winchester, created by the artist from 1924 to 1927.
