My Highest Pleasures:Hunter and the Arts

William Hunter’s bequest provided for a museum which was the first in Britain with a gallery of paintings. Hunter’s is the only intact art collection of one of the founding Royal Academicians. The quality is extremely high, with 12 major masterpieces among his 65 paintings.

This lecture will show how Hunter, the great Enlightenment anatomist, was also one of the dominant influences on aesthetics in the early years of the Royal Academy, illustrated with examples from his magnificent library as well as from his collection of paintings.
