George Denholm Armour 1864-1949

Born in Lanarkshire in 1864, George Denholm Armour was the son of a cotton broker. He regularly hunted with the Lanark and Renfrewshire and from whom G.D. inherited his interest. He attended school in Fife and then to art school in Edinburgh and thence to the Royal Academy of Art in Edinburgh, where he won most of the prizes available.

Armour had a studio in London in Fulham Road and his first work was published in the Graphic in 1890. He met Phil May at this time who introduced him to Punch to which he was to contribute for more than thirty five years.

Armour was a fine horseman who delighted in buying cheap horses at auction and ‘sorting out’ their problems to supplement his income. For two years he ran a stud in Hertfordshire with Joseph Crawhall and in 1898 he married Mary Robb and they settled in Chertsey before moving to Devizes, Wiltshire; at that time he regularly hunted with the Beaufort.

In 1910 he visited Austria and Hungary to study military horse procedures and also the Spanish Riding school in Vienna. At the beginning of the war he joined the Remount Stables near Southampton and by the end of the war he was Director of Remounts in that area for which he was awarded the OBE.

Armour's first wife died in 1924 and he married Violet Burton in 1926. For many years he hunted with the Sparkford Vale Harriers and the South Berks Foxhounds. Whilst hunting he carried a sketchbook in his pocket and frequently made quick sketches on the spot, his studio was a stable where he constantly had a horse before him for reference.

Much of Armour’s work was for illustration in magazines and books, but he also painted some large equestrian portraits. He worked in Oil, watercolour, pastel, pen and ink. His illustrations show a great understanding of horses and hounds as well as character and charm and display a great sense of humour. G.D. Armour was one of the outstanding artists of his time and he died in 1949.

John Sanderson Wells 1872-1955

John Sanderson Wells was a London artist who specialised in sporting and animal painting. He studied at the Slade School of Art in London, and later at the Academie Julian in Paris. From 1895 he was a regular contributor at the Royal Academy and was elected to the Royal Institute in 1903.

Much of Wells' work was privately commissioned. These subjects were mainly hunting subjects - including one for the Duke of Beaufort. Wells painted in a naturalistic style, his painting is technically very well executed and a feeling of graceful movement is evident in his compositions.

His work is in many important private collections, and is highly sought after. He died on 16th March 1955.
