William Henry Hunt (1790 - 1864) was born in London and painted in his early days primarily in oil, but later switched to watercolor paintings. With the latter, he was ultimately famous and highly regarded as an artist. The young hunt was a very sickly child. He suffered from deformed legs and was always a bit too small and weak for his age. So it was clear early on that a normal or physical work would not come into question for him. He showed interest in painting. At the age of 14, he started his artistic education with the painter John Valery, where he spent about seven years as a student. Another well-known student of Valey, with whom Hunt became friends, was John Linnell .

With Linnell, the young Hunt liked to move to the surrounding towns around London to draw together. Due to his physical condition Hunt was not able to travel long distances. Therefore, they chose places that were easy for him to reach. Hunt worked with Linnell for several years. Later he met the well-known physician and art collector Thomas Monro. His friendship with Monro grew ever closer over time. The influential art patron even invited Hunt to spend a month living and painting with him. He was even ready to pay Hunt for his sketches made there. Hunt's entry into the watercolor painting was rather hesitant. But soon he developed a good sense and is considered one of the founders of the English school for watercolor painting.

The motifs were often very simple and unexcited, but they convinced with a very realistic and at the same time tender presentation of his motives. For example, he painted various bird nests in such detail that he got the nickname Bird's Nest. He was described by his contemporaries as a master of still life. Its most active phase was in the 1830s until about the mid-1850s. In this phase, Hunt was so productive that sometimes up to 30 of his paintings were exhibited simultaneously. Hunt's signature works include "Boy with Goat", "Primroses and Bird Nests" or "Christmas Pie". He died at the age of 73 after a stroke. © Meisterdrucke
