Rediscovering the Art of Victoria Hutson Huntley
During the 1930s and 1940s, Victoria Hutson Huntley (1900-1971) was one of America’s leading lithographers. She produced more than 100 lithographs and a small number of intaglio prints from 1930 until her death. Major museums across the country purchased her work, as did many collectors. Her work can be divided into three periods, based on her earlier life in the North, her residence in Florida (1946-53) and her return North. This exhibition represents all three. It also shows her different areas of interest: landscape, human figures and close-up views of the natural world. Nature, especially the Everglades, was a common theme during her time in Florida, where she created many lithographs of bird life. The exhibition includes approximately 30 lithographs and two paintings.
