Sir Alfred Munnings (1878-1959)


 

Munnings was of course, one of the most wonderful painters of horses. Munnings began working at the age of 14, when he worked to produce images for chocolate tins. In 1918, he was sent to France as an official War Artist and was attached to the Canadian Cavalry Brigade. During this time he painted some 40 or so paintings. He was elected President of the Royal Academy in 1944.  Some of his best work recorded East Anglian farming scenes, but he is also famous for his paintings of racehorses. Here are some of his examples of his work available as posters and books from Amazon :
