Circle of William Henry Hunt (1790-1864)
Study of a mackerel and a prawn,
watercolour and touches of bodycolour,
4 x 9¼ inches
This delicately painted study with its feathered brush strokes recalls the work of William Henry Hunt (1790-1864), a prolific artist who produced many finely observed still lives. It is unsigned but contemporay in date with Hunt's work.
