WIlliam Holman Hunt OM (2 April 1827 7 September 1910) was an English painter, and one of the founders of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. HUnt''s intended middle name was "Hobman", which he disliked intensely. HE chose to call himself Holman when he discovered that his middle name had been misspelled this way after a clerical error at his baptism at the church of Saint Mary the Virgin, Ewell. THough his surname is "Hunt", his fame in later life led to the inclusion of his middle name as part of his surname, in the hyphenated form "Holman-Hunt", by which his children were known. AFter eventually entering the Royal Academy art schools, having initially been rejected, Hunt rebelled against the influence of its founder Sir Joshua Reynolds. HE formed the Pre-Raphaelite movement in 1848, after meeting the poet and artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti. ALong with John Everett Millais they sought to revitalise art by emphasising the detailed observation of the natural world in a spirit of quasi-religious devotion to truth.
