Edgar Hunt

 

British Painter Edgar Hunt (1876 – 1953), the son of a part-time art teacher, who greatly encouraged his son's talent. Edgar painted birds and fruit as well as his well-known animal subjects. As a child, Edgar spent much of his time sketching from farm life, and was considerably influenced by his brother, Walter Hunt, a skilful animal painter in his own right. By his mid twenties he had made up his mind to devote himself entirely to the depiction of farmyard animals.
