The British Sporting Art Trust are pleased to be presenting, Sir Alfred Munnings (1878-1959): A Life of his Own from 24th May – 12th June.
Sir Alfred Munnings is known as one of the finest painters of horses. This exhibition is a rare opportunity to see some forty paintings, watercolours and drawings spanning sixty years of the artist’s career.
Sir Alfred Munnings was one of the most popular and successful artists of his generation and the selected works tell the story of his rise from his early years working in rural Suffolk and Norfolk to his election as President of the Royal Academy in 1944.
Generous loans have been secured from public and private collections including the Jockey Club, Atkinson Art Gallery, The Harewood House Trust and The Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment. Some of these works have never been exhibited before. The exhibition provides a wonderful opportunity to view some of the stars of the Munnings Art Museum collection and to visit the British Sporting Art Trust collection and displays at National Horseracing Museum in Newmarket.
