Colin Hunter of the Holland Park Circle: His Life and His Melbury Road Home

By Godfrey Bell

Colin Hunter (1841-1904) was a hugely successful Scottish Victorian artist who exhibited nearly one hundred works in the Royal Academy over thirty-five years. He lived at 14 Melbury Road, Kensington, in the heart of the Holland Park Circle and the smart set of the enclave of famous artists, including Lord Leighton, G F Watts and Sir Luke Fildes among others, most of whom were both Hunter’s friends and neighbours. In the hundred or so years since Hunter’s death he has – undeservedly – gradually faded into relative obscurity. This book is not just a biography of the artist, it is also the most comprehensive catalogue of his works to date.
