Walter Hunt was born in 1861 and died in 1941. He was the grandson of Charles Hunt, son of Charles Hunt Junior and the elder brother of Edgar Hunt. All three were animal painters and they all lived in Warwickshire. Walter Hunt painted farming scenes in a style similar to Edgar, especially barn interiors with donkeys and calves.
Walter was quite original in his painting of animals and figures and renowned for his excellent representation of ponies and calves, which appear to be his favourite subjects, with compositions being built around them. They may be considered as characteristic of Walter. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1881 onwards, titles including: “Best of Friends”, “Twins”, etc. “Dog in a Manger”, R.A. 1885, was bought by the Chantrey Bequest.
Baron Fine Art gallery provide a very diverse range of high quality 19th - 21st Century Oil Paintings, Watercolours, Etchings and Sculptures.
