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.
