Lots 100-103 Alan Brassington

Lots 100-103, Alan Brassington, Lots 100-103 Alan Brassington Alan Brassington is an internationally acclaimed artist, probably best known for his life-size paintings of horses. Born in Zimbabwe in 1959, he moved back to Ireland with his family in 1964. He studied at the Northwich School of Art, Cheshire and then at Stockport School of Art. Alan's passion is painting in oil and he has always been fascinated by the power and beauty of horses and this is reflected in many of his paintings. The drama and variety of the racecourse has always attracted him: 'I love painting horses and people. The racetrack is irresistible, it is an entire world of its own. If you see a special horse in the parade ring it is easy to understand why one would be so inspired by this animal with its grace, its beauty, its intelligence and its strength.'. Alan has been the artist-in-residence to Royal Ascot Racing Club since 1997. His work can be found in the collections of Her Majesty the Queen, the Duke of Devonshire, Ralph Lauren and many more. *Alan Brassington (Irish, b.1959) JOCKEYS RETURNING Signed with initials l.r. and signed and dated '02' on the reverse 29.8 x 74cm* Artist's Resale Right may apply to this lot. *Alan Brassington (Irish, b.1959), Viewing, LONDON VIEWING Sworders Auctioneers, 15 Cecil Court, London WC2N 4EZ, 0203 971 2500, 8 April 2019 - 18 April 2019, STANSTED VIEWING 26 April 2019, 9am - 5pm 28 April 2019, 10am - 1pm 29 April 2019, 9am - 5pm 30 April 2019, from 9am, Request a condition report, Request a condition reportRead more
