An interesting water color drawing of a Bird's Nest and Hawthorn Blossoms by William Hunt of the Old English Water Color Society has recently been purchased by the Fine Arts Department, and now hangs on the screen in the upper gallery of the Museum.
This is a thoroughly characteristic example of Hunt's still life painting, and exhibits his remarkable skill in the use of pure water colors. It shows no trivial elaboration; but is a highly finished and masterly rendering of beautiful natural objects in their charming gradations of light and color.
The department has also acquired an original lead pencil drawing by Samuel Prout. This too may be seen in the Museum.
