Michael John Hunt is an English figurative painter and etcher who came to Winterthur in 1996 and spent a week exploring the magnificent museum and grounds. With an artist's eye, he noticed the way the light falls on obscure corners of rooms and the smallest details that usually go unnoticed. since his visit to Winterthur, Michael has embarked on painting each of Winterthur's 175 historic rooms with only 10 or so left to complete. The collection is a true artist's study of texture and light.
