William Henry Hunt

Person  Male  Born 28/3/1790  Died 10/2/1864

Categories: Art

Watercolour painter. The picture is a self-portrait. Baptised in what is now Endell Street. Sickly and lame from childhood, he was also very short and less than handsome. But he seems to have been well-liked and a successful artist, painting so many still-lifes of nature that he earned the nick-name "Bird's Nest". Father of Alfred William Hunt. Died 62 Stanhope Street, Hampstead.
