    This subject is unusual within Munnings' oeuvre. He rarely included architectural elements in his equestrian portraits and thus far this scene remains unidentified.

    This work will be included in the forthcoming catalogue raisonné of the works of Sir Alfred Munnings compiled by Lorian Peralta-Ramos.

    Special Notice

    This lot is offered without reserve.

    A gift from the artist to his framer, Mr. Frank Paterson.
    with Nicholas Brown (The Leicester Galleries) at the Alpine Gallery, London, July 1977, no. 162, from whom purchased by the late owner.
