William Holman Hunt (English, 1827–1910) borrowed subjects from the Bible and the works of Walter Scott, Alfred Tennyson, John Keats, and William Shakespeare—he was known to borrow books from friends in preparation for a project. His intellectual bent also shaped how he worked: he drew on Renaissance fresco technique in his oil paintings.
