Set of Four English 19th century Fox hunting scenes

Items / Sporting and Animals


John Nost Sartorius (1755-1828) was an English painter of horses, horse racing and hunting scenes. He is considered the best known and most prolific of the Sartorius family of artists. He was the son of horse artist Francis Sartorius and the grandson of John Sartorius. His patrons included the Prince of Wales, the Earl of Derby, Lord Foley and Sir Charles Bunbury. He preferred to be known as John N. Sartorius Jr. to distinguish himself from his father and grandfather. From 1781-1824 he exhibited at the Royal Academy in London and a list of the seventy-four pictures which he showed there can be found in Walter Gilbey's 'Animal painters of England from the year 1650, volume 2'.

This is a very good set in excellent condition.
