Cottages at Largo

Hunter, like Fergusson, undertook no official artistic training. Born in Rothesay, Hunter’s family emigrated to California in 1892. His painting interests were fuelled by trips to Scotland and France around 1904 to 1905. He responded more slowly than Fergusson to the radical artistic developments then centred in Paris. It was not until the 1920’s that he adopted a brighter palette and more fluid handling of paint, the initial stages of which can be seen in this painting.
