For more than a quarter century Frost & Reed has exhibited Nineteenth and Twentieth Century classical and contemporary equestrian and sporting art at the Annual Saratoga Springs event, slated for July 30 to August 23.
Tony Nevill, managing director of the London firm, which opened its first US gallery off Madison Avenue last October, says, “Represented in this year’s exhibition are works by Harold Septimus Power, an early contemporary of legendary sporting artist Sir Alfred Munnings and two large canvases by John Sargent Noble. Perhaps the most important art on view will be two paintings by the Twentieth Century American artists Aiden Lassell Ripley, ‘Pheasant Country’ and ‘Setter on Point.’ He painted in Massachusetts and has a large following of admirers throughout the United States.”
Works by Sir Alfred Munnings, Montague Dawson, and Marcel Dyf will be featured, as will those by Heather St Clair Davis, a British equestrian artist whose works will be shown in Saratoga for the first time since her death four years ago. Also featured will be creations by fellow British equestrian artist Peter Smith and American sporting artist Booth Malone.
Other artists represented include George Garrard, descended from Marcus Garrard, a painter to Queen Elizabeth I; Heywood Hardy, a sporting painter spanning the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries; and Jean Baptiste Louis Guy, an animal painter.
The exhibit will be displayed at the Prime Hotel and Conference Center, 534 Broadway, 9 am to 6 pm daily. For information 212-717-2201 or www.frostandreed.co.uk.
