This exhibition has closed.
The British Sporting Art Trust is pleased to present paintings, watercolours and drawings spanning 60 years of Sir Alfred Munnings career in this exclusive exhibition, Sir Alfred Munnings (1878-1959): A Life of His Own.
This exhibition is a rare opportunity to see some of Sir Alfred Munnings’ finest works and is being held at the National Horseracing Museum from 24th May – 12th June.
Known as one of the finest painters of horses, Sir Alfred Munnings was also one of the most popular and successful artists of his generation. 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 highlights of the Munnings Art Museum collection and to visit the British Sporting Art Trust collection and displays at National Horseracing Museum in Newmarket.
