Claude Hunt was an animal and genre painter born in Fulham in 1863 and was the son of the artist Charles Hunt Jnr (1829-1900) and Ann Sarah Kilbee. He was part of the Hunt family of artists and was the grandson of Charles Hunt Snr (1803-1877) and brother to Edgar Hunt (1876-1955) and Walter Hunt (1861-1941), all of whom were accomplished artists. The family lived in Fulham until 1878 when they moved to Granville Road in Wandsworth. Hunt was taught art by his father who also influenced his choice of subject matter. He painted farmyard scenes and genre scenes featuring children with animals such as dogs, donkeys or goats. In the late 1890’s, he moved to Alresford in Hampshire where he taught art and in 1898 married Louisa Smith. As well as painting, he also developed a talent for photography and took many photographs of Alresford and its residents. Towards the end of his life they lived at 39a Anstey Road in Alton where he died in 1949.
