Lot Essay

This painting is a study for My Horse is my Friend (also known as 'Lady Munnings with Isaac'), which was shown at the Royal Academy in 1923, and is now in the collection of the Pebble Hill Plantation, Thomasville, Georgia. It was painted three years after his marriage to Violet McBride and the finished painting shows Lady Munnings, in a silk top hat and dark riding habit, leading the grey saddled horse.

We are grateful to Lorian Peralta-Ramos for her assistance in preparing this catalogue entry. This work will be included in the forthcoming catalogue raisonné of the works of Sir Alfred Munnings.
