Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    The artist's family by descent

    A landscape and orientalist painter, Edward Aubrey Hunt was born in Weymouth, Massachusetts. He visited England for the first time in 1873, returning in 1878 to set up his studio. He travelled in Europe and went to Tangiers in 1896-7. On his return he settled in Hastings, Sussex, where he died in November 1922. His free impressionistic style found favour amongst his contemporaries and he counted the artists Whistler and Lavery as his friends. Whistler wrote in his letter to Charles William Deschamps in 1888 "His work is most brilliant and full of delightful quality".
