About this Item

Lithograph, hand-coloured, by J.W. Giles, on india paper mounted. An excellent example of this print after Davis, animal painter to King George IV and Queen Victoria. From the 'Hunters Annual' series (part 1, plate 2) A very fine equestrian portrait, full of movement and excitement, from a series that eventually included sixteen prints, issued in four parts. The hounds are also very carefully observed and qualify as canine portraits in their own right. "Richard Barrett Davis was the son of Richard Davis, huntsman to George III's private harriers. Initially self-taught, his ability came to the notice of the King who arranged for him to be given proper training. He exhibited paintings at the Royal Academy for over fifty years, his first exhibit being in 1802. In 1831 he was appointed animal painter to George IV and later Queen Victoria." (Charles Lane British Racing Prints p.98). Mellon British Sporting and Animal Prints p. 63; Schwerdt I, p.258. Bookseller Inventory # 5230
