William Henry Hunt - A Rustic Beauty

1790 - 1864.
A watercolour artist. He became an artist after his parents decided it was the only career open to him after he was born crippled in the legs. He trained under John Varley. He painted landscapes but seems to have preferred rustic scenes like this one. Notice the care with which each object is painted and how relaxed the girl is.

I keep wondering if she knew the artist, she seems so relaxed.
