I have a NEW WEBSITE PAGE about the Hunt International Exhibitions of Botanical Art & Illustration which I've been working on for some time.
What this means is that rather than listing the artists by exhibition, they are listed by where they live (or lived at the time of the exhibition - a few have since moved).
This means you can see which countries have done well in terms of artists having paintings or illustrations or fine art prints accepted for exhibitions in the Hunt in recent years
The top five countries in the 6 exhibitions held in the last 15 years are:
Now does that list surprise you?. I guessed the first four places correctly and wasn't sure which would come fifth!
I'm going to be using the listing of artists who've exhibited at the Hunt along with the listings of RHS Gold Medal Winners as another key source for developing my lists of important contemporary botanical artists and illustrators by continent.
If you've not explored these as yet, I have pages on my website which list the important contemporary botanical artists and illustrators (with a short bio and a link to their website)
I certainly don't have everybody listed as yet who should be! I'm working my way around the world, adding me people in gradually over time. (I'm about to start a major update of the Japanese section).
This new list of people who have recently exhibited at the Hunt is going to help a lot!
