GEOFF HUNT, P.P.R.S.M.A. (British, Contemporary)

Geoff Hunt is probably best known through his paintings for the covers of Patrick O'Brian's superb series of Aubrey/Maturin novels. As well as being today's finest painter of the fighting sail of the 18th and 19th centuries he is a world-renowned expert on the ship construction and naval history of the period, thanks to the minutely-detailed research he undertakes for each of his paintings. Geoff has special interest and expertise in the ships and career of Nelson.

Born in 1948, Geoff Hunt studied at Kingston and Epsom Schools of Art from 1966-70, becoming a freelance artist and designer after working two years in advertising. He served as Art Editor of the journal WARSHIP from 1977-79, and has designed many books on marine subjects for Conway Maritime Press.

Geoff and his wife spent 1979-80 cruising to the Mediterranean and back in their boat Kipper. He became a member of the Royal Society of Marine Artists in 1989 and was elected President in 2003. He is also a member of the Wapping Group, who take their subjects from the River Thames, painting en plein air.
