  William Holman  Hunt 


Birth Year : 1827
Death Year : 1910
Country : United Kingdom

William Holman Hunt was born in London. In 1843, while attending lectures at the Royal Academy Schools, he met Sir John Everett Millais, who together with Hunt and Dante Gabriel Rossetti formed the pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Hunt's linear style filled with minute details and an unswerving morality made him a natural and key element of the movement.

In 1849, a trip to France and Belgium exposed him to the Flemish primitives, with whom he had a natural affinity. During trips to Egypt and Palestine in 1854 and 1892, Hunt painted his two great religious works, "Finding of Christ in the Temple", and "The Scapegoat". Although the pre-Raphaelites broke up in 1852, Hunt remained loyal to that style until his death in 1910.
