Make an enquiry about this item
A fine oil on canvas horse portrait of Monarch by William Eddowes Turner (1836-1904). The painting is typical of horse portraiture with the animal front and centre in a stable setting. There is a blanket in the painting which does have the initials ‘JF’ which would be those of the owner. The painting is signed to the lower left but not dated. There is a label on the reverse which gives the name of the horse. The painting has been lined some time ago. It has been professionally cleaned and had some minor pieces of restoration. The work is framed in a period gilt frame which has had some minor repair.
William Eddowes Turner was born in Nottingham, a self-taught artist of animals, particularly cattle, in both oil and watercolour. He exhibited at the British Institution and Suffolk Street and locally in Nottingham 1858-1862. He died at Radford, Nottinghamshire in 1904. He is a highly regarded provincial animal artist.
The whole is ready to hang with a great period look and a quintessentially English country house style. C.1890.
