To be sold at our Fine Art & Antiques, Wine, Clothing & Textiles on 17th Mar 2016
Henry Calvert (British, fl. 1813-61) A Spaniel and a Terrier in a Kennel, oil on metal panel, signed 'H. Calvert' in paint lower left, framed, 25 x 25cm Henry Calvert was born in Tuxford, Nottinghamshire. He lived most of his working life in Manchester, but moved in later life to Southport (home of the Waterloo Cup). Calvert ''is a comparatively little known and underestimated artist whose ability deserves greater recognition. His work is of a high standard, his horses well drawn, his composition good and his detail...accurate. Although he would seem to have led a fairly active artistic life his work is now fairly rare'' (Dictionary of Equestrian Artists). His best known works are of Hunt Meets (all of which were engraved): 'The Cheshire Hunt' 1839, 'The Vine Hunt Meeting' 1843 and 'The Wynnstay Hunt' 1855.This painting has been sympathetically restored and cleaned, and is housed within a fine contemporary style gilt frame.
