The two paintings above depict the 1838 British St Leger winner (right) and the 1937 Ascott Gold Cup Winner (left). These two paintings are examples of British equestrian art at its finest, and the subjects are two top class British champions. The tradition of equestrian art in the British Isles branches back to Godolphin Arabian, painted in 1724 by George Stubbs, and has evolved across the centuries to the modern day. To view these two important paintings in the history of equestrian art, please call in to our gallery in South Kensington, where we also have many other historically important race horse portraits and a fantastic selection of British and continental art.

The triptych above is a beautiful 15/16th century Spanish work of art. The triptych boasts an original carved wood frame, in excellent condition, and has also been recently restored to a very high standard. Its three panels measure together an imposing 68 inches wide and 70 inches high. The tempura on panel and gold leaf combine to give a rich vibrancy of colour, an important testament to the important religious culture of Renaissance Spain.

Please see to the right an image of beautiful early 19th century English landscape by William Carter (fl. 1843-1864), depicting the Thames at Reading. In its original frame, the painting is in excellent condition and very attractively painted to the oval. The characteristic romantic and picturesque style, as well as the unique frame, allow the painting to act like a window into another world: that of rural, early 19th century England.
