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.
If wishes were horses then beggars would ride...
