Robert Douglas Hunter received his art education in Boston where he became fully steeped in the traditions that have come to characterize the “Boston School” of painting: carefully planned compositions, accurate drawing, and a delight in the ability of light and shadow to create atmosphere in a painting. His exquisite still lifes have earned him numerous awards and medals, including a Citation from the Governor of Massachusetts in recognition of his painting and his contribution to the education of youth. In addition, a new naturally-lit gallery at the Cape Museum of Fine Arts in Dennis, Massachusetts was named in his honor in 2001.
