Color lithograph. Image measures 17 x 24". Sheet measures 22 x 31 1/4" This print by the celebrated artist Cecil Aldin illustrates the wide array of people attending Bluemarket Races. Made in 1901 and printed in 1902, the print features a fortune-teller and a blind and likely homeless violin player in the foreground, two people who have come to the racing grounds to capitalize on the immense crowds of people who fill the print's background. A set of horse-drawn carriages speeds across the center of the scene. An old woman seems to have been startled or even knocked down by the hubbub, and one of Aldin's famous dogs chases the oranges that have spilled from her basket. The print's vibrant color complements the vivacious and often humorous scene it depicts. It is in good condition, with stains and tears limited to the margins, not affecting the image. Cecil Charles Windsor Aldin (1870-1935) was a British artist and illustrator known for his paintings and sketches of animals, sports, and rural life. A skilled huntsman, Aldin often depicted horses and dogs in his watercolor drawings and prints. This print is a lovely example of his work. Bookseller Inventory #
