Abstract:

"Who was Charles A. Hunt? That's the question Roy Bubb was often asked by visitors who viewed Hunt's White Mountain paintings in the Madison (New Hampshire) Historical Society's museum." "As a museum docent, Bubb began to research the obscure artist, uncovering his life in Nashua, New Hampshire, and his ties to Madison families. In his search the author learned about many more paintings, found a number of old photographs related to the artist and his family, and, as much as possible, answered the question about Hunt." "In preparing this book, Roy Bubb researched many Madison homesteads depicted in the Hunt paintings, and here reveals much town history concerning early settlers and their ties to each other as they struggled to farm the rocky hillsides." "Adding to Bubb's work are the critiques of art historian Charlotte Colby Andersen, who describes Hunt's "wonderful sense of color"and "his excellent feel for composition." All of this skill shows "a painterly ability in a supposedly untaught painter."" "Bubb was able to locate twenty paintings, some privately owned, others in several museums. Perhaps more will be identified as a result of this publication and Charles A. Hunt will once again be known for his artistic talents, as he was when he died in Nashua where he had lived for sixty years and was described in his obituary as "a landscape artist of considerable note.""--Jacket.
