Four Seasons Series: Winter

Peter Hunt created several lithographed versions of "The Four Seasons." All varied in color range and poses, but all featured his whimsical people, angels and animals. A young man takes his sweetheart for a sleigh ride while friends build a snowman.

Summer

A woman tends her overflowing garden while a bluebird tends her new brood and fish leap in the stream in this silkscreen, part of the Four Seasons series.

Spring

Two lovers dance for joy while a friend sings with a songbird in Peter Hunt's silkscreen for one of his Four Seasons series.

Autumn

Perhaps this theme wouldn't be considered politically correct nowadays, but it this rendition of a hunter and a doe was considered a charming rendition of Fall for the Four Seasons series.

Don Quixote Owl

Near the end of his life, in the Sixties, Peter Hunt tried his hand at psychedelic and pop art, considering them to be the next step in American folk art. His Don Quixote Own has shadows of the delusional knight in its eyes.

Soloman

In his earlier works, Peter Hunt often painted scenes from the Bible or popular folk stories. This detail depicting Soloman is part of a montage of the story of Soloman and Sheba painted on a dining room cupboard now on display at the Provincetown Heritage Museum/Pilgrim Monument Museum

Before...

At the height of his fame, Peter Hunt bought up almost all the properties on what is now Kiley Court in Provincetown, dubbing it "Peter Hunt Lane." There, he established his Peasant Village where, in the summer, his apprentices would decorate furnishings and accessories under the sun in a courtyard so tourists could watch.

... and After

Here's how Peter Hunt Lane looks nowadays. Still charming, but missing almost all traces of its former resident. The only relic left is a faded design on a door near the terrace where the apprentices painted.

Trace of Peasant Village

Here's the detail of a door still bearing the decorations it wore when part of Peasant Village in Provincetown.
