Hunting Scene


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Hugh Bolton Jones, an American artist from Baltimore, was a student at the Maryland Institute College of Art from 1865-76. He spent five years living and working in and around the village of Pont-Aven, Brittany, a popular destination for artists such as Paul Gauguin. In Brittany and Spain he made sketching tours, and paintings that resulted from his trip were shown in Baltimore in 1878. He relocated to New York in 1881. He later studied with Frederic Edwin Church, renowned Hudson River School painter, in Jamaica. In this painting, Jones depicts a hunter who has just shot a rabbit. The scene is heavily forested, with four prominent trees and a small hillock.
Provenance Dr. Morris E. Sumner, Baltimore, between 1960 and ca. 1973; given to Walters Art Musuem, 1995.
