Charles Lewis after Sir Edwin Landseer
Hunters at Grass
35 x 26 inches
A black and white steel plate engraving by Charles George Lewis (1808-1880) after the painting by Sir Edwin Landseer RA; published in London and New York in 1866.
This large-scale engraving shows Landseer's artistic skills at his best. Three hunting horses are show at grass, resting between seasons. He is arguably the best equestrian artist working in England after Sir George Stubbs. Charles Lewis was considered a very capable and reliable engraver who could be trusted to reproduce the work of some of the most famous artists of the day.
