About this Item

Aquatint. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and minor foxing. A charming plate depicting a mature horse riding on a hunt, from a suite of six prints after Ansell entitled "Life of a Race Horse." The animal and genre painter and draughtsman Charles Ansell was renowned for his graceful images of horses. This beautiful plate comes from his most celebrated work, Life of a Race Horse , which was published in 1784. Francis Jukes was a prolific engraver who was chiefly known for his topographical prints, the bulk of which he executed in aquatint. He contributed numerous plates to various publications including Walmsley's Views in North Wales (1792-4) and Campbell's A Journey in Scotland (1802) and collaborated on several projects with the engraver and publisher Robert Pollard.

Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs , vol. 1, p. 353; cf. Siltzer, The Story of British Sporting Prints , p. 76. Bookseller Inventory # 13881
