Catalogue Note

The landscape and farm-buildings around the pretty village of Ceres in Fife was one of Hunter's favourite and most enduring subjects. He painted in Fife on the east coast of Scotland between 1919 and 1926. Fife was a particularly important source of inspiration and features strongly in his development. Hunter's emotional attachment to the area is best summed up in his own words:\`\`\`\`\`\`\`\`The "valley" was very fine at night. When the sun was down one felt the elegiac spirit of Corot in the willows and that of quality men Poussin and Claude in the classical sweep of the hills. I was the sole spectator often in the twilight fragments that haunt - nature seen to unfold her rarest aspect - while Ceres slept.' (Jill Mackenzie, The Challenge of Colour - George Leslie Hunter 1877-1931, unpublished biography; Letter from Hunter to his friend Matthew Justice, undated). Hunter arrived in Fife in search of a fresh new painting ground. Early on in his career he moved through a period of using distinct areas of bright colour set against each other to create a sense of line and form. The present lot has all the hallmarks of Hunter's exploration of the use of line during 1923 and 1924. The ultimate goal for any of his paintings was that it should embody the very essence of nature. This premise was based on Cézanne's deeply considered and revolutionary approach to art, allied to Hunter's absorption and working through how to 'realise' this difficult concept on canvas. Hunter\’\’\’\’\’\’\’\’s painting technique in Fife has been described as, \‘colour has totally taken over in a riot of rhythmic brushwork.\’\’\’\’\’\’\’\’ (London, Duncan Miller, George Leslie Hunter 1877-1931, not dated or paginated)

George Leslie Hunter (British, 1877-1931)

Footnotes
Hunter returned to Glasgow from San Francisco in 1906, his studio having been destroyed in the earthquake. Few details of his movements 1907-14 have come to light, but he is known to have visited Paris at least twice before 1912. This picture of the quai and famous Arcades is a fascinating rediscovery, as its 'characteristic' Hunter style anticipates the Fife paintings of the 1920s, yet remains different from the experimental oils painted at Etaples in 1913. He may have sailed into picturesque Dieppe, which inspired artists such as Whistler, Monet and Sickert, en route to Paris, and his fellow Colourist, JD Fergusson, had painted a major work, Dieppe, 14th July 1905 : Night, which was shown at the Salon of 1907. The standard-sized 'cigar box lid' panel is one Hunter favoured when working on the spot.
