Colin Hunter (1841­–1904) was a hugely successful Scottish artist who exhibited nearly one hundred works in the Royal Academy over thirty-five years. Especially well-known for his brooding seascapes, Hunter lived at 14 Melbury Road, Kensington, in the heart of the Holland Park Circle among a smart set of famous artists, including Lord Leighton, G. F. Watts, and Sir Luke Fildes, most of whom were both Hunter’s friends and neighbors. In the hundred or so years since Hunter’s death he has—undeservedly—faded into relative obscurity. With Colin Hunter and the Holland Park Set, Godfrey Bell has written the first biography of this fascinating man and his times. With two hundred illustrations of Hunter’s work and life, this book invites us all to rediscover this important artist.
