Sir Alfred Munnings: Painting Winners

The exhibition reveals the impact of Newmarket, Epsom and other well-known courses, horses and owners on one of Britain’s greatest equestrian artists, Sir Alfred Munnings. The exhibition comprises of some of Munnings most recognisable works, including those of his favourite subject - the start of the race. In contrast, you will also see studies of empty stands and paddocks which describe the peacefulness of the course before the explosion of the race itself. Though drawn to Newmarket as an artist, Munnings also had a personal affinity for the town which is demonstrated through a recently discovered poem, ‘I’ll fly away at midnight, whilst a star will lead me on along the broad highway Towards Newmarket for another day.’
