    With Duncan R. Miller Fine Arts, London

    EXHIBITED:
    London, Duncan R. Miller Fine Arts, George Leslie Hunter, 16 June - 4 July 1990, cat. no. 35
    London, Duncan R. Miller Fine Arts, The Scottish Colourists, 29 June - 29 July 2000

    LITERATURE:
    Roger Billcliffe, The Scottish Colourists, John Murray, London, 1989, (plate III)

    Hunter was consistently the most painterly of the Colourists, and this characteristic oil painted circa 1930 underpins the more spontaneous flowers and fabric with the structure of arcs and planes of furniture, door and book.
