Available for sale from Big Sky Fine Art; this original drawing by Cecil Aldin dates from the early part of the 20th century.
The drawing is signed lower right.
The work is presented and supplied in a walnut veneered pine frame from the mid-late 1970s (which is shown in these photographs). The mount and backing board have been replaced with new conservation materials in 2019. The glass has been replaced at the same time with new non-reflective glass (Tru Vue UltraVue® UV70). The previous gallery and framing labels have been retained and mounted on the rear of the backboard to maintain the provenance.
This antique drawing is in excellent condition, commensurate with its age. It wants for nothing and is supplied ready to hang and display. The paper has two small marks at the top above the head of the driver; after scrutiny we believe that these marks were present on the paper when the artwork was created by the artist.
Formerly with the Hampton Hill Gallery, Middlesex, London.
Cecil Aldin was a British artist and illustrator who was a household name with a substantial public following from the later 1880s to the 1930s. Today he is regarded as being one of the most original and very best sporting artists of the twentieth century and his works is highly collectable. As an artist Aldin preferred to work in pencil or watercolor, but also produced pastels and many fine etchings. His works show great humour and precision and he was a master of caricature in the drawing of both people and animals. Aldin was a man of great charm and led a full, industrious and interesting life. He illustrated some of the most famous literature of his day, associated with Lance Thackery and Alfred Munnings, made significant contributions to national sporting and community life and produced one of the defining images of the Great War. Today his works are held by the National War Museum and notable collections world-wide.
