Artist of the moment…….Robert Douglas Hunter

 

 

Robert Douglas Hunter is a wonderful painter who specializes in painting the still life. Robert Douglas Hunter was born in Dorchester, Massachusetts in the year 1928.

Hunter served in the United States Marine Corps.

In this clip more works by Hunter:

Here the Robert Hunter tells us what he thinks all great paintings have in common. From the Boston Guild of Artists Group:

For his artistic education Hunter attended the Vesper George School of Art located in Boston, Massachusetts. In addition the artist studied privately with artists Henry Hensche and Robert Hale Ives Gammell.

The artist is now based out of Walpole, Massachusetts.

For compositions Robert Douglas Hunter reminds me of the Dutch and Flemish masters who mastered the art of the still life. Artists from this time period made beautiful paintings from very limited resources. Floral bouquets were painted one at a time, even wealthy Dutch of the tulip era seldom displayed more than one tulip in a vase at one time.

Hunter is one of my favorite painters of vessels. His bowls, vases, and jars have a great simple shape and bold color. The bold and strong color makes for a strong reflection.

Hunter served as president for the Boston Guild of Artists for five years from 1973 until 1978.

Another great painter of vessels I have profiled would be Jeff Legg.

In addition to his own art career, Hunter has been a treasure to anyone wishing to pursue a career in the arts. The artist has taught over forty individuals who went on to professional art careers.

Price range information: The artist works with oils and prices range from $10,000 to $40,000.
