When Hunt began his artistic career in 1806 his background and technique were shaped by eighteenth-century practice. As the years went by he changed both his technique and his subject matter. By his death in 1864 he had become in all basic respects a typical Victorian artist, and a figure who had made a significant technical impact on a number of his fellow artists.
