A simply gorgeous equine portrait in the manner of the English School and assumed to be from the 19th century. A handsome gray is portrayed standing in a stable, dramatically lit.
Painted with a fine hand, the muscular definition, coat, and head have been beautifully rendered with expertise. The work is painted in oils on wood panel and although the signature lower left is quite clear, I have not identified the artist.
It's a small painting and it's set in an absolutely stunning, carved gilded frame of great depth and profusion-- lavish in form, gleaming with coppery gold and quite heavy. Condition notes: Above the signature there are a couple of tiny white specks where, under magnification, it appears that the artist missed with his black paint. There's another tiny white spot under the blue cloth on the bench and that's a speck of foreign matter stuck to the surface. I dared not try to pick it off. Otherwise, both the painting and the frame are in superb condition.
