The Life and Works of Sir Alfred Munnings
This is the latest work on Munnings and was produced for The National Horseracing Museum's exhibition
which ran between April 18th and November 4th 2007.
A good background read if you are thinking of seeing the new Munnings film "Summer in February".
It consists of 30 full colour pages in A4 size. It has 80 colour images of his works and numbers other black and white photographs of him and his subjects.
It is a well written and informative catalogue, chronologically going through his life.
This catalogue is a must for all hunting and racing households.
"Sir Alfred Munnings is regarded now as one of the greatest sporting artists of all time and his equestrian portraits and racing scenes have influenced many of today's young painters. He is one of the few artists who also achieved recognition, fame and fortune in his own lifetime and, as a consequence, he received countless prestigious commissions from al over the world. Today, his original paintings and drawings are collected worldwide and fetch seven figure sums at auction."
