Offered for sale is a 19th century English oIl on board depicting a fox hunter astride his horse as he clears a fence, signed and labeled H.S. Cottrell. The painting is quite charming and sentimental as the titled British were quite fond of their "hounds and horses" during the 19th century. The pastoral background features another hunter in the distance and one of the hounds emerging from behind a tree.
The painting is in good age related condition with a slight bow to the painting. An old newspaper article is attached to the verso.
Size: 10 1/2" Height, 12 1/4" Width.
