**(One of several pencil signed prints by the artist in my shop)**Photolithograph print published by Frost and Reed, 1929, from the original painting by Sir Alfred Munnings, 25 1/2" by 23 1/2" framed, boldly PENCIL SIGNED at lower right margin by the highly important sporting art master, and quite famous English painter of all equestrian subjects, SIR ALFRED J. MUNNINGS (1878-1959). The handsome subject is a most formally and traditionally dressed horseman, sitting atop his apparently Royal mount in front of a palace. This print was issued in England by the firm Frost and Reed, Ltd., in 1929, making it one of the earlier prints produced in the roughly 30 years that Munnings produced prints in association with the firm. This relatively early example, has been exposed to sunlight, or, the colors have chemically changed to what is now a monochromatic green and yellow; this seems to be very commonly seen with the artist's prints. Pencil signed examples are highly sought after, as original drawings and paintings by Munnings are very expensive indeed, some paintings having reached into the millions of dollars. Other than the color change, there is some normal age toning of the paper. See the net for much more information on this highly regarded impressionist painter of horses and the people who interacted with them in England between the wars.
