Vintage British Hunting Print - 1863 - Going - For Sale

Vintage British Hunting Print - 1863 - Going
Price: $85.00
Purchased from an estate auction, this charming and colorful hunting print is plate 6 in a series of 12 prints, published on May 19th, 1863 in London, England by Messrs. Fores, 41 Piccadilly. The series is an ironic look at the very British tradition of ''going to the hounds'' and/or hunting on horseback. In the series, we first see the riders searching for lost stirrups and other pieces of equipment, getting lost in the brush, asking directions from peasants, etc. Meanwhile, the poor deer is being chased through thicket and brush - this plate (Full Title: Going the Pace...) continues along in a similar vein: one of the riders is in the ditch, one looks like he''s about to fall, another has made it fairly precariously over the other side but has lost his hat.... The image measure 9.5 x 15.5 inches, on a sheet which is roughly 11.5 x 17.5 inches. Margins show foxing but image is clear. This series is - in our opinion - hysterical, and would look great anywhere near horses or riders, or in a country home or hunting lodge. It will be shipped flat. THIS IS AN ORIGINAL, NOT A REPRODUCTION. WE ARE HAPPY TO SHIP WORLDWIDE. Please check out the other items we have for sale on this site. E-mail with any questions or requests for additional photos.
