About the artist:
Born in Todwick, Yorkshire, Mary Ethel Hunter was the eldest child of Rev Henry Rudd Hunter and his wife Hannah. Her father came from the Penrith area of the Lake District, and the familiarity with the region influenced her frequent choice of landscape subject.
In her late twenties, she studied in Newlyn and Penzance, became a friend of Dod Procter, and exhibited at NAG. Later she studied in Paris. Upon return to England, she worked as an art mistress at St Albans (J&G).
She exhibited primarily in London and in the areas surrounding her home in Ripon, Yorkshire, but infrequently elsewhere, including with The Castle Bolton Group which included artists Fred Lawson and George Graham.
