This lovely re-strike engraving is one of 4 in a hunting series by the infamous John Frederick Herring, Sr (1795-1865)- the Meet, The Start, The run and The Death- whose greatest interest when he was young was drawing and painting horses. He added the Sr to his name when his up-and-coming son, John Frederick Herring Jr, started becoming a popular artist as well. Well-versed in the fox hunting world that was all the rage during this time period, this print is a true testament to his skill in portraying the hunting life. Handsome mistress on her white horse, riding side saddle with her lovely riding attire accompanied by handsome red-coated hunters. Hand-colored engraving print, engraved by J Harris S. C.
