compared to the extensive information about American artists.|
Alfred William Hunt was a landscape painter and watercolorist who was first associated with the Liverpool School of Painters, but later had a successful London career. His watercolors, which were praised by Ruskin, often combine Pre-Raphaelite precision with Turneresque atmosphere.
He was the son of a Liverpool landscape painter, but although he was precociously talented in art his parents wished him to enter the church. He went up to Corpus Christi College, Oxford in 1848 (showing 500 of 2188 characters).
