Anonymous sale; Christie's, London, 1 May 1880, lot 145 (36gns). with The Fine Art Society, London. Exhibited London, Royal Academy, 1857, no. 994. Lot Notes This early Pre-Raphaelite landscape dates from the formativeyears of Hunt's career, when he was championed by Ruskin. Born inLiverpool, the son of a painter, he graduated from Corpus Christi,Oxford, in 1852. He met Ruskin, a fellow winner of the NewdigatePrize for English verse, through a shared passion for Turner; andit was probably Ruskin who encouraged Hunt to abandon an academiccareer and pursue his ideals of fidelity to nature in Art. Havingbeen elected an Associate of the Liverpool Academy in 1854, Huntexhibited at the Royal Academy between 1854 and 1857. His firstpatron was James Wyatt, a print-dealer and Mayor of Oxford, whoseportrait by Millais has recently been seen at the Academy in thecollection of Lord Lloyd Webber. Hunt's output was limited, but ischaracterised by intense observation and attention to detail. Inlater years he worked mainly in watercolour, and it is rare to findsuch an early oil preserved in its original frame in remarkablecondition.
