Goats and Farmyard Fowl by

One of the most accomplished animal and bird painters, Edgar Hunt is best known for his farmyard scenes. During his life two artists were to influence his work; his father, Charles Hunt (1829 - 1900), and his life-long friend John Frederick Herring Jnr. (1820 - 1907). Hunt’s paintings were always based on vivid and careful drawings of animals taken from life.

He exhibited at the Royal Society of Artists and at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool.
