J. (Julian) Courtenay Hunt was a versatile artist who worked in oils, pen and ink and pastels. His works include portraits, still lifes and landscapes. His color palette often explored the vivid shades of purple and red, as exemplified in this oil painting.
Hunt received his art education at the Ringling College of Art and Design and art training under Jerry Farnsworth in Cape Cod. Hunt exhibited one-man shows at the Palm Beach Gallery and at the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens in Jacksonville, Florida. He contributed to shows at the Norton Gallery in Palm Beach, the National Academy Gallery in New York and the Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach, Florida. Hunt has pieces in the collection of the University of Florida and the Jacksonville Historical Society. The artist was also commissioned to paint a portrait of Andrew Jackson for the Jacksonville City Hall.
