J.H.L. - Late 19th Century Watercolour, Steeplechase



A thrilling scene depicting horses and their jockeys tackling a water fence in a traditional steeplechase. The steeplechase originated in Ireland in the 18th century and the name is derived from early races in which orientation of the course was by reference to a church steeple, jumping fences and ditches and generally traversing the many intervening obstacles in the countryside. Presented in a white mount and a wooden frame with a gold painted inner edge. Initialled to the lower-right corner. On watercolour paper.


There is some foxing and discolouration. There are some small surface scratches, abrasions, and creases, and a closed tear to the lower-left corner measuring 3cm. There are some mild scuffs and scratches to the frame.
