Alfred William Hunt

Wind of the Eastern Sea, by Alfred William Hunt (1830-96). Watercolour. England, 19th century.
Hunt balances the dark purplish shadows of the cliffs with the golden light of the sun on the horizon.

I've fallen head-over-heels in love with this painting by Alfred William Hunt "Wind of the Eastern Sea: View of Whitby Abbey" - and I'm trying to locate a place to buy a framed print of it, have you any ideas? I've been to all the usual places (a few) like and but they don't have this particular painting! Just found your blog and have subscribed. Love it! Thank you.

Hi Bex

Thanks for following the blog.
I haven't posted for a while, but hope to soon.

I love that painting too. It's in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum (VAM).
here's a link to where you can purchase a print from them.

It might be cheaper from other art print companies though.
Try googling the title of the painting + the words "purchase print".
All the best
