Antique 19th century hand colored engraving titled Sir Richard Sutton and the Quorn Hounds, original painted by Francis Grant, engraved by Frederick Bromley, London published 1855 by Thomas McClean. Features an English equestrian landscape fox hunt scene with horses, hounds and hunters.
“Frederick Bromley was a British engraver, active 1832-1870.”
“Sir Francis Grant (18 January 1803 – 5 October 1878) was the most fashionable portrait painter of his day. He painted royalty and aristocracy, as well as many leading figures in the legal and literary worlds, and the Church. His subjects included Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, Palmerston, Disraeli, Lord John Russell, Sidney Herbert and Lord Derby.
Grant was educated at Harrow, and as a young man, having quickly run through an inheritance of £10,000, he had hopes of repairing his fortunes at the bar. However, as Sir Walter Scott observed, 'law is not a profession so easily acquired, nor did Frank's talents lie in that direction. His passion for painting turned out better.'
As an artist Grant was largely self-taught, learning by copying the Old Masters. He first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1834 when he was thirty-one, and continued to show there regularly until his death forty-four years later. He rapidly ascended the institutional ladder, and became president in 1866 on the death of Sir Charles Eastlake; a knighthood followed soon after. Grant was succeeded as president by Frederic, Lord Leighton.
