Framed Still-Life Watercolour by William Henry Hunt (1790-1864)


Framed still-life watercolour of apples, grapes and redcurrants by William Henry Hunt (1790-1864).

Hunt was one of the creators of the English school of watercolour painting. His subjects, especially those of his later life, are extremely simple. John Ruskin said that, all in all, Hunt was the finest ever painter of still life. Several examples of Hunt's work are in the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Hunt devised a process which involved mixing gum with Chinese white and laying this as a hard priming on which he would then paint or stipple in pure watercolour. This enabled him to obtain the much admired ‘bloom’ on peaches, plums and grapes.
