P. J. Schotel (1808-1865) - Zeegezicht met schip in nood nabij Harlingen
Walter Hunt (1861 - 1941)
Walter Hunt was born in 1861 into a highly artistic family. His father Charles Hunt was a painter of genre scenes, and his brother Edgar Hunt is well known for his portraits of chickens, goats and rabbits.
Hunt is best known for his paintings of farmyard scenes, particularly of calves, horses and dogs. His paintings achieve superb color and are meticulously detailed.
He lived in Wandsworth, London, and exhibited works at the Royal Academy from 1881, titles of paintings shown there include Best of Friends and Twins. In 1885, Dog in the Manger was bought by The Chantrey Bequest and can now be seen at the Tate Gallery.
The dimensions of the panel are 36 x 25.5 cm.
The painting needs a good professional cleaning I think.
Signed on the bottom right.
The frame, which will probably be the original one, is not in perfect condition, but it is good.
There is something written on the back frame, but I can't read it.
