We are exhibiting at The Games Fair from the 29th – 31st of July at the LAPADA Pavilion at Ragley Hall. With this in mind, we are delighted to have been featured within this spring edition of The Games Fair magazine.

Learn how Michael came to be the respected English figurative painter he is today and why he is so interested in history…

‘He Depicts Rooms As We Think We Experience Them, But He Provides Much More Information Than We Could Ever Absorb In A Glance’

As this is the first Newsletter of 2022, I hope I’m not too late to wish you all a Happy New Year.  We have a busy few months ahead of us and as our planned exhibitions are in the spring and summer, we are hopeful of meeting you somewhere along the way.

Our first exhibition is the Winter Armchair Art Fair and we are very pleased to let you all know that once again we have teamed up with other galleries to create this special event that you can enjoy at home. It is live on our website and Michael, Phil and I are hoping that you will be browsing pages 96-105 that feature The Hunt Gallery. Please contact me if anything takes your fancy.. Or click this link to view the catalogue online

March 23rd – 27th will once again see us in The Old Town Hall, Chelsea, London, showing Michael’s latest paintings.  We had such a good time last September that we are looking forward to being there again.  The quality of the exhibition was outstanding and if you didn’t see it then, I highly recommend it.

If you look at the Events page on our website, you will see that we will be returning to Petworth Park in May, Olympia in June and the LAPADA Pavilion at the Game Fair at the end of July.  

Let’s all look forward to spring,

About the Artist

Michael John Hunt was born in 1941 and is an English figurative painter and etcher. Primarily a topographical artist with a natural ease of draftsmanship that enables him to capture the essential details he needs for his paintings, Hunthas developed his own particular and distinctive style. Having exhibited at the Royal Academy six times as well as at the Paris Salon (Silver Medal) in 1976, he was approached by the Kunsthandel Pieter Breughel in Amsterdam (then owned by the family Noldus), and received many commissions and one-man exhibitions in Amsterdam over a period of 35 years. Mr. Hunt’s wife Rosemary is the curator of The Hunt Gallery, in Sandwich, Kent, where there is a permanent collection of his work.

A selection of Hunt’s interior paintings have been exhibited in the Society of Winterthur Fellows Gallery at Winterthur Museum as well as at the American Museum in Britain. A series of paintings of Bayou Bend interiors is on display at Bayou Bend’s Lora Jean Kilroy Visitor and Education Center from November 4 through December 31, 2014.
