    Default Fox Hunting Art :)

    Branching off from the other thread with the horse racing oil painting...

    I was given four fox hunting prints from my [now deceased] uncle who had them in his "equestrian room." Some are LARGE and some are standard 16" x 20". I have been trying to find out some history on them, but I haven't been able to.

    I will post some photos as soon as my fiance' returns with the camera from taking tornado pictures:

    1. "The Bury Hunt"
    Engraving by F. Bromley
    Written at the bottom: To Edm. Grundy Esq. of Bury, Lancashire....[dedicated by his humble servant...] Joseph Lanetti.
    Dated January 1840

    2. "The Meet" and "Returning from the Hunt"
    Published Feb 2, 1883 by G.P. McQueen

    3. "The Death"
    [on the left] John Dean Paul Delt
    Published by Thomas McLean, Haymarket, 1825


    ETA: The prints are all in excellent condition: matted and framed. The stock on which it was printed seems a lot sturdier than prints I see online.

    Try posting this in the hunting forum. Lots of folks interested in sporting art there.
