Edgar Hunt oil on canvas painting of a barnyard with chickens, pigeons, and a white dove. Signed E Hunt 1906 lower left. The frame measures 18.5 x 20.25 inches, the canvas measures 12.25 x 10.25 inches. Edgar Hunt, along with his brother, Walter, were the third generation in the Hunt family of Birmingham, England, to become artists. His grandfather was Charles Hunt (1803-1877), who was well-known for his humorous genre subjects which he exhibited from 1846 at the Royal Academy and other prestigious venues. Edgar's father was Charles Hunt, Jr. (1829-1900). He painted in a similar vein to his father but he also did some animal subjects. With this background of artistic achievement it was natural for Edgar and Walter (1861-1941) to become painters. Edgar had no formal art training but was schooled by his father. He specialized in painting exquisitely detailed works of farmyard scenes and animals, executed meticulously in a realistic style which never changed throughout his career. Hunt was devoted to animals from a very early age. He had originally intended to be a farmer and had worked on a farm near Lewes in Sussex for a short period. Bio obtained from the Burlington.co UK. Signed E Hunt 1906 lower left. Literature : 'The Dictionary of Victorian Painters' by C. Wood; 'Popular 19th Century Painting' by Hook & Poltimore; 'Dictionary of Painters' by E. Benezit. v
