Pair of lovely oval shaped etchings after English sporting artist Thomas Gooch entitled as follows:

Plate 1 - A Foal with It’s Dam

PLate 2 - The Colt in Breaking

Designed as part of a series of six aquatint etchings named 'The Life and Death of a Race Horse" first published in 1790. Thomas Gooch (1750-1802) was a London based artist specialized in horse portraits who also painted other animals, coaches and London scenes. His works had a moral, reformist message. As one of his contemporaries, English writer Dr. Hawkesworth, aptly expressed in reference to this series, it was meant "To excite a benevolent conduct to the Brute Creation." They come nicely framed and ready to display. In very good used condition with minor toning, titles trimmed and imperfections to gilt frames as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.

Measurements: Frame: 15 9/16" by 12 5/8" (39.5 cm by 32 cm); Oval Image: 12" by 10 1/16 (30.5 cm by 25.5 cm) approximately.
