Portrait of John Hunter (1728-1793)
Three quarter length portrait, seated outdoors in a lightly wooded landscape. Hunter rests his left hand on the head of a dog, which is in turn rests its head in Hunter's knee. The sitter is dressed in a black tri-corner hat, dark blue coat and white neck-cloth with a red waistcoat embroidered in gold and buckled knee-breeches over white stockings. Hunter's right hand rests inside his coat. The animal has been identified as one of John Hunter's wolf-dog hybrids. [The knife man, Wendy Moore (London Bantam Press, 2005), pp.170-172]. John Hunter was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1767.
