Lot Essay

In 1882, the year he painted the present work, Hunter chartered a small steamer and for two months painted at sea in order to be in direct contact with nature. In this respect, he has been compared to the marine artist Henry Moore. Hunter's seascapes possess a quality of brooding melancholy and nostaligia. Typically he painted sunsets, evenings of approaching storms rather than the bright light of midday. His paintings capture the moods of the sea rather than its purely visual attributes.
