CaptionWilliam Morris Hunt [March 31 1824 – September 8 1879] American painter was born at Brattleboro Vermont to Jane Maria Leavitt Hunt and Hon. Jonathan Hunt who raised one of the preeminent families in American art. William Morris Hunt was the leading painter of mid-19th-century Boston Massachusetts. --- --- --- Following the untimely death of his Congressman father from cholera Hunt's mother Jane took him and his brothers to Switzerland the South of France and to Rome where Hunt studied with Couture in Paris and then came under the influence of Jean-François Millet from whom he learned the principles of the Barbizon school. The Hunt family remained in Europe for a dozen years. During part of that time William Morris Hunt and his brother Richard Morris Hunt shared an apartment at 1 rue Jacob close by the École des Beaux-Arts where William studied painting under Thomas Couture. "From the training and inspiration each of the brothers was to experience in the next several years in France would come great strides for each in his work " writes historian David McCullough. "'Mr. William Hunt is our most promising artist here ' reported Thomas Appleton to his father." "The greatest of Boston painters" writes art historian G. W. Sheldon in his American Painters "and one of the few really great American painters Mr. William Morris Hunt was born in Brattleboro Vermont."
