Sheet: 13 3/4 in x 10 1/8 in. (35 cm x 25.7 cm.)

The fisherman in this watercolour is characteristic of the works Hunt produced during the first period of his career. Until about 1830, Hunt spent many winter months of each year at Hastings. It was at Hastings that Hunt occupied lodgings in the Old Town adjacent to the fishing quarter where he did innumerable drawings, many simple slight pencil sketches of fishing boats being loaded or unloaded on the beach. Other pencil sketches provided material for his numerous watercolours of seascapes, shore scenes, sunsets and fisher folk which he made over a number of years. The watercolour we are offering is likely to have been exhibited at the O.W.S., in 1829, under the title; "A Fisherman Mending Nets"., a watercolour with the same title was sold at Christieís sale of Huntís works, 16/17 May 1864. Lot 181.
