About

Charles Hunt Snr British, (1803-1877) Market Day Oil on canvas, signed & dated 1877 Image size: 28 inches x 36 inches Size including frame: 36½ inches x 44½ inches Charles Hunt was a genre painter who was born in 1803 and lived in Kensington, London. He was also a highly skilled engraver and is known to have worked with George Hunt to whom he was probably related. He was the founder of a dynasty of painters: he was the father of Charles Hunt Jnr (1829-1900) and grandfather to Edgar Hunt (1876-1955) and Walter Hunt (1861-1941) all of whom became well-known artists. Initially, he only started exhibiting at the private galleries until around 1846. Perhaps due to his success as an engraver, he didn’t start exhibiting at the major London galleries until he was in his late 50’s. He exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1862 and 1873 with titles including ‘Vocal and Instrumental’, ‘The Banquet Scene’, ‘Macbeth’ and ‘Make Way for the Grand Jury’. He also exhibited at the British Institution and Suffolk Street. Hunt specialised in painting humorous scenes with children as actors, often dressed up as in this wonderful example. Works by him can be found at the Bury Art Museum, Ferens Art Gallery, Harris Museum, National Maritime Museum and the V&A as well as being held by Halton Borough Council and Calderdale Borough Council. The painting is housed in a new, English made gilt frame which is in excellent condition.
