Still Life, Stocks about 1930


  • Scottish Art
When Hunter returned to Glasgow in 1929 after living in France, he was encouraged by his friend and art dealer Tom Honeyman to concentrate on still-life painting. This was an ideal situation, as Hunter loved to paint flowers in particular, and his still lifes sold consistently to give him a steady income. This painting is unsigned, and the thin, sketchy brushwork shows that it is probably unfinished. Hunter excelled as a watercolour artist and parallels may be seen with the technique used here.
