/ HUNT /    click to hear
One of the most influential and respected artists in Boston during the late 19th century, William Morris Hunt was a leading proponent of the French Barbizon School of painting, the precursor of Impressionism.  He was a landscape, genre, and portrait painter, a highly respected teacher, and widely read writer.  His engaging personality combined with his talents to make him the leading arbiter of aesthetics in New England where he was one of the first artists to inject French influence.

Hunt was born in Brattleboro, Vermont and was raised in New Haven, Connecticut. He was from a prominent family that included his brother Richard Morris Hunt, the architect of the Vanderbilt houses "Biltmore" and "The Breakers."    ...  Displaying 750 of 10869 characters.
