For those not familiar with the artist, I have included his biography below. THis is a wonderful original gouache and watercolor on paper of 3 horses with mounted soldiers.
I dont know what brigade or group these soldiers are from but they are well dressed in full uniforms. Image measures 10 1/4 x 7 1/2 inches. Painting is in excellent condition with just some minor foxing spots in the sky and also below the horses.Triple archival matte and framing are the perfect compliment to the painting. A few scuffs to the paint of the frame but nothing too bad. Frame measures 17 1/4 x 14 1/4 inches. For those not familiar with the artist his biography from a website that sells his work reads: Richard Simkin (18501926) was a British artist and illustrator of military uniforms.
The War Office employed him to design recruiting posters, and illustrate the Army and Navy Gazette. He painted many watercolours of British Army uniforms. His work on posters polished his ability to create eye-catching images. This led to him contributing illustrations to the Boy's Own Magazine, The Graphic and others. Here are some of his lithographs for you to choose from.
They are genuine antique prints, made in the 1820s. CHECK THE PICTURES ON THIS GREAT PIECE. If you have any questions regarding the work, please dont hesitate to ask.
