There is a lowbrow artist named Cre Hunter, but since your painting is dated 1921 it's highly unlikely it's his work lol

I have a beautiful C. Hunter painting also and have not been able to find any info on the artist? Mine has a beautiful path lined with colorful flowers leading to a cottage with vivid blue skies and white clouds. It kind of reminds me a tiny bit of Thomas Kinkade style. Mine is very large hangs over my bed with a gold frame. It was given to me by my Grandmother who passed at 99 years of age. I can't find anything out about this artist??? I guess C. Hunter is a mystery....

Again, absolutely loved it... no idea what the true value is...but it is gorgeous and signed - but mostly loved it.
I purchased a C.Hunter oil painting from a thrift store for about $15....Its of two women and a child along side of a river...lake...with a bridge off in the back ground..the two women are holding over their heads parasols and in i'd say victorian style in mostly pastels....its a beautiful painting....but i dont know who C.Hunter is.....let alone the value...but either which way...i have to agree the C.Hunter is a mystery

I have the same painting with the ladies, child, bridge and people at a table along a river. Yes, it is very Monet like. It is signed C. Hunter in red. No date. My Mother gave me the painting about 15+ years ago. I do not care if it is mass produced, I think it is lovely. Thanks for all the info.

I also bought a painting by C. Hunter at an estate sale. It is of a woman walking along a river with a couple of sail boats and a bridge in the distance. She is surrounded by beautiful flowers and she is carrying a basket of flowers. The painting is full of pastels and is very peaceful. Who is this guy? I hope if anyone finds out any thing, they will post the info. on this site.

Sorry one more time that I don't give you better description but any help will be welcomed.
thanks in advance
Clementine Hunter
Clementine Hunter was born on Hidden Hill Plantation (now called Little Eva Plantation) near Natchitoches, Louisiana, in December of 1886. When she was a young girl, her father moved the family away from the harsh environment at Hidden Hill (the plantation that was supposedly the basis for Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin) to the more hospitable Melrose Plantation.
Clementine lived at Melrose for most of the rest of life, moving just right down the road a few years before she died on January 1, 1988, at the age of 101. Melrose was a cotton plantation founded in the 1790’s by the freed Congo woman, Marie Therese and her son Augustin Metoyer. The plantation and its family were a focal point of the African and Creole cultures along the Cane River. During Clementine’s days there, it had become a small artist colony, where Louisiana writers and artists like Alberta Kinsey, Caroline Dorman, and Harnett Kane spent time with others such as William Faulkner and John Steinbeck.

As the story goes, New Orleans artist Alberta Kinsey left some paints and brushes behind on one of her visits to Melrose in about 1940. Clementine, who had at this time turned from work in the cotton fields to work in the kitchen as the cook at Melrose, found the paints and brushes and asked permission to paint a picture of her own. She presented Melrose resident Francois Mignon with a painting of a Cane River baptism on a window shade, and her life changed forever.

Clementine Hunter is Louisiana’s most famous female artist, and she is one of the most important folk artists of all time. Her work can be seen in the Smithsonian Institute, the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Museum of American Folk Art in New York, the High Museum of Atlanta, the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts, the New York Historical Association, the Oprah Winfrey Collection in Chicago and many other museums and private collections across the country, including the newest exhibition at the Roger Ogden Museum in New Orleans, where the Clementine Hunter Educational Wing is expected to open soon.

No, not the same artist. Clementine Hunter's style is primitive and she mainly painted rural scenes depicting African-Americans.

Default C. Hunter Mystery Continues

I just purchased a small 8x10 oil of the same as described by everyone else...two women, one in blue, the other in pink, standing in front of a lake. It is an original. I'm guessing the artist did several of the same scene, possibly from a photo.

The frame is damaged from someone trying to glue fabric to it. The frame says "Made in Mexico" on the back.

I'm also guessing this is a "starving artist" who does a lot of the same kinds of scenes because he/she can do them quickly over and over again and sell them.

I've attached a photo of the one I have that I paid $5 for at a thrift shop.

No, she is a primitive. these oils everyone are talking about are done in the style of Monet, expressionist.

Question

I have an oil painting purchased at a thrift store several years ago signed in black by C Hunter. It is a scene with two cows meandering down a wooded path behind a babushka'd woman. The painting is composed mostly of brown shades and large defoliated trees (trees dominate the painting).

Any clues?

Default Maybe Good News

While searching for any leads on my C. Hunter painting I have discovered that Christies has, in the past, sold 2 paintings that were signed C. Hunter. Unfortunatley both have "no photo available". On Christies web site there is a link for a free appraisal. I would recommend taking advantage of this and posting the results here for all to see. Maybe if there's enough interest in C. Hunter we can up the value a little.

I have two paintings by C. Hunter. Both have the same lady and tha same girl wearing pink dress but the scenes are different. I think they were his inspiration because all his paintings are about them. that's why I think they aren't mass produced. All his paintings have the same lady and girl, but all are in different scenes.

Cool C. Hunter

I bought a beautiful painting on canvas about 15 years ago signed by C. Hunter from a dealer at the wharf in Santa Cruz, Ca. for $35. The scene is of a cottage with a winding path leading up to it, surrounded by flowers and a pond. I had it framed and tried to sell it for $40 yesterday at a garage sale, with no takers. Plenty were curious though. I actually paid more for the frame! I guess I'll hang on to it a bit longer....
