Hunt, William Holman
English painter, who, together with Dante Gabriel Rossetti and John Everett Millais, was a founder in 1848 of the Pre-Raphaelites. In all of his artworks, many of which are biblical scenes, he strove for Pre-Raphaelite goals of serious moral content, direct study from nature, and historical authenticity. William Holman Hunt 's oil paintings-of which perhaps the two best known are Finding of Christ in the Temple (1854, City Museum, Birmingham, England) and Scapegoat (1854, Lady Lever Art Gallery, Port Sunlight, England)-are minutely detailed and painted in a style characterized by crowded composition and bright, relatively crude colors.
