About this Item

Harrington Bird “Turf Favorites 1887” From McQueens Sporting London: 1889 Hand colored engraving Sheet size: 25" x 43 ½ " Framed size: 40 ½" x 60 ½" Harrington Bird was born into a British military family in India in 1846. He was educated in London and intended to join the military before turning to art. In 1875 Bird moved to Montréal where he took the post of Director of Art with the Board of School Commissions. He exhibited at, a became a member of, the Royal Canadian Academy. In 1885, he returned to London, where he worked in both oils and watercolor and painted a variety of subjects, though he known best for his sporting works. He continued to exhibit his art at many institutions, including the Royal Academy, London. He designed many etchings of prominent English race horses, particularly Derby champions. Bird had a fine eye for showing the movement of the horse's body. A number of prints were done after his works, including the Queen's Race Winners, a series of thirteen racehorse portraits, and Turf's Favorites 1887 which we are proud to present to you today.
