A note from Nancy Rees of Connecticut who studied with Peter in
Provincetown in 1949 or '50. "Peter was so unique. You certainly portrayed
him perfectly... Everyone loved him so. He truly made everyone happy - we
laughed with him and we worked very hard for him. All had a great time."
Pictures of a chest bought in Seattle by a couple in Tennessee
originally though was Pennsyvania Dutch... and realized it was likely
decorated by Peter Hunt!
A truly "found" artwork: a Columbus, Ohio, couple, cleaning out a house
they'd bought, came across a splendid Hunt-decorated hutch and table.
Charming recollections from Bob Wescott, who, after working for Peter as a
youth, grew into an adult who continued to employ Hunt concepts in a
variety of venues.
