This new volume is heavily illustrated with images ranging from large paintings to sketchbook drawings with text written by the artist himself. The new book reflects Hunts developing career during a time in which he served a five-year term as President of the Royal Society of Marine Artists, worked on large-scale paintings such as the definitive Mary Rose,and also completed numerous outdoor sketches and paintings. The book is divided into six sections: 1. The Sea Painters World, an introduction to the artists studio work at Merton Place, London and his plein air work on the River Thames- 2. Home Waters- 3. The Mediterranean- 4. In the Wake of Nelson- 5. North America and 6. The West Indies and Beyond. This concept sets Geoffs work in a broadly geographical context, showcasing the artists freer plein air style alongside the exhaustively researched maritime history paintings to which he owes his standing as Britains leading marine artist.
