17” x 21”, oil on relined canvas, inscribed A… Cooper on original label verso and titled ‘Portrait of a Horse’
Here is an equestrian painting of superb quality. Abraham Cooper was one the most well known horse painters of his time but painted also historical battle scenes. John Frederick Heering Sr. (1795-1865) was one of his students and their style of painting is very similar. Abraham Cooper is included in all major sources of art reference as well as ‘British Equestrian Artists’ by Antique Collectors’ Club.
