Happy Birthday William Morris Hunt!! This artist was born in America in 1824, a painter and teacher, Hunt was influential in encouraging his students to study what artists were doing in Paris at the time. He studied under Millet, a precursor to Impressionism. His work was largely figurative portraiture, but he did move into landscape murals in his later years. The painting of Niagra Falls is quite large, 62"X99", and truly conveys the enormity of the Falls!
