16″ x 12

In Michael John Hunt’s painting, a captivating scene unfolds as a pianist sits gracefully at a grand piano. The pianist’s fingers dance across the keys, producing melodious sounds that fill the air. Scattered atop the piano are musical scores, adding an artistic touch to the composition. The setting of the painting is a grand room adorned with a high ceiling adorned with ornate cornices, exuding a sense of elegance and refinement.

As the pianist plays, they are positioned in front of a tall, narrow window, allowing natural light to gently filter into the room. Despite the daylight, a chandelier remains illuminated, casting a warm glow over the surroundings. Behind the piano, a magnificent bronze sculpture captures attention—a horseman with a raised hand, symbolizing strength and power. On the sculpture’s base, a couple of dogs stand, perhaps representing loyalty or companionship.

Hunt’s painting beautifully combines the artistry of music, the grandeur of the room, and the presence of exquisite sculptures. It invites viewers to appreciate the harmonious blend of visual and auditory aesthetics, while evoking a sense of admiration for artistic expression and the timeless beauty found within the surroundings.
