                Est: $70,000 - $100,000

                John Frederick Herring the Elder (British, 1795-1865) Memnon, a Bright Bay, William Scott up, Wearing the Harlequin Colors of Lord Darlington, 1826 oil on panel signed J.F. Herring and dated (lower right); inscribed Memnon/1825 (lower center) 21 3/4 x 30 inches. Property from the Estate of Arthur I. Appleton Provenance: Frost & Reed, Ltd., London, no. 55994S Lot note: espite being essentially self-taught, John Frederick Herring the Elder's paintings are some of the most accurate depictions of racing history in the first half of the nineteenth century. The artist had sketched animals since childhood, and at the age of eighteen, while working as a coachman, he was able to study the horses, as well as the other breeds he encountered in his travels through the English countryside. By the age of 25 he was exhibiting at the Royal Academy, where his talent was eventually recognized by wealthy patrons who commissioned him to paint their hunters and racehorses, including Queen Victoria. Both Memnon, a Bright Bay, William Scott up, Wearing the Harlequin Colors of Lord Darlington, 1826, and Lottery Going to the Start, 1830, are two of the finest portrayals of the Doncaster racecourse, a subject Herring revisited in numerous variations. Memnon, a Bright Bay, William Scott up, Wearing the Harlequin Colors of Lord Darlington, shows the jockey William Scott mounted on Memnon, a bay colt, and the winner of the classic St. Leger stakes in 1825 at Doncaster. The horse was bred and owned by Richard Watt of Burton Constable in East Yorkshire. The 1825 St. Leger race brought out a record field of thirty horses, and due to popular interest, the race’s result was the first ever to be carried by pigeon. While a bird took the message to London, specially trained dogs conveyed it to Manchester. In 1825 Memnon was sold to Lord Darlington for £3,500, for whom he beat Lord Exeter's Enamel in a match for 1,000 guineas at Newmarket, and also won the Ascot Gold Cup with Sam Chifney up, before being retired to stud. The rider in the painting, William ‘Bill’ Scott, was one of the foremost jockeys of his generation. He won the St. Leger nine times, which included a run of four wins from 1838 to 1841. He also won the Derby four times, and the Oaks on three occasions. Lottery Going to the Start, like Memnon, masterfully shows the Doncaster racecourse and the horses that ran it. The Doncaster Cup was founded in 1766 and is the oldest continuous horse race in Britain. Herring was to depict the 1825 Doncaster Cup participants in variants of the present scene several times over the years, due to its popularity. In the left foreground of the composition is the 1825 Cup’s eventual winner, Lottery, preparing to start with G. Nelson up. Standing fully sixteen hands high, the racehorse’s notable physical prowess is brilliantly conveyed by the artist. The tense, sleek, musculature suggests his famous speed, and the wide eyed and proud stance remind the viewer of his strong spirit. In the 1825 race, Lottery's closest match was Mr. Craven's Longwaist (shown at the left of the three horses standing in mid-ground), bested by half a neck. Left over half a mile behind, the rest of the field included Mr. Lumley's second place finisher Falcon, Mr. Farquharson's third place Figaro (the right most of the three horses), with also-rans comprising Lord Silgo's Starch, Mr. Lambton's Cedric (the middle horse of the three), the Duke of Leeds' Crowcatcher, Lord Exeter's Zealot, and Mr. Duncome's bay filly St. Helena. Though many consider the 1825 Cup Lottery's finest achievement, that same year he won the Fitzwilliam Stakes at York and would go on to win a second Gold Cup through a victory at Preston. Lottery would end his life in France, one of many English thoroughbreds imported in the 1830s by Henri Lacase, a buyer for the French National stud of the Orleans monarchy.

Herring soon received commissions from a range of wealthy customers, with patrons such as William Taylor Copeland (1797-1868), the Duchess of Kent (1788-1861) – to whom he served as animal painter – and Queen Victoria (1819-1901). In 1853, Herring moved to Meopham Park in Kent, and it is from this point that the artist moved away from horse portraits, instead spending his final years painting a wider variety of hunting and racing scenes, and landscapes.  It has been suggested that this work, traditionally attributed to Herring Junior, is in fact probably a work of the late 1840s by Herring Senior.

This work is part of a genre that was very popular in 19th century England, paintings of horses in country or genre settings, even delving into the psychology of the animal portrayed. As a result, such works usually present, as we see here, a clear, simple, classical composition with the animal in profile in the centre, at a large size, in a post-Romantic landscape setting. The painter's attention is focused on the description of the animal's anatomy, the warm glow of its coat and its bearing, but also on giving it a certain humanity in its gaze. John Frederick Herring was a painter, engraver and coachman in Victorian England. He is known as the painter of the "Pharaoh's Chariot Horses" of 1848. Herring, born in 1795, was the son of a London merchant of Dutch descent, who had been born abroad in America. The first eighteen years of Herring's life were spent in London, England, where his main interests were drawing and horses. In 1814, at the age of 18, he moved to Doncaster in the north of England.

Herring 1833, inscribed “Consol”, oil on canvas, 36.5 x 48 cm, framed We are grateful to Christopher Wentworth-Stanley, archivist of the Jockey Club Austria, for his scholarly advice. Consol, bay stallion, by Lottery out of a mare by Cerberus, was born in 1828, bred and owned by George Walker. Trained by the great John Scott “The Wizard of the North” at Malton, Yorkshire, in 1832 Consol won races at Aintree (Tradesmen’s Gold Cup) and York, and in 1833 the Stand Cup at Aintree (ridden by George Edwards) and the Gold Cup at Preston (ridden by Sam Darling), plus a further race at Doncaster. After the present painting was made (1833), Consol went on to win the King’s Plate at Lancaster in 1834 and the following year the King’s Plate at Newmarket, both times ridden by John Scott’s brother, Bill. In 1837 Consol was sold to the pioneering breeder Elijah H. Boardman of Huntsville, Alabama, and exported to the United States, where a promising career at stud was cut short by Consol’s early death in April 1839.
