Sir Alfred James Munnings KCVO, PRA (8 October 1878 17 July 1959) was known as one of England's finest painters of horses.
Alfred Munnings was born 8 October 1878 at Mendham, Suffolk across the River Waveney from Harleston in Norfolk. His father ran Mendham water-mill on the river. At fourteen he was apprenticed to a Norwich printer, designing and drawing advertising posters for the next six years, attending the Norwich School of Art in his spare time. When his apprenticeship ended, he became a full time painter. The loss of sight in his right eye in an accident in 1898 did not deflect his determination to paint, and in 1899 two of his pictures were shown at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.[1] He painted rural scenes, frequently of subjects such as Gypsies[2] and horses. He was associated with the Newlyn School of painters. Munnings career would be associated with equine painting. He used his art to depict horses involving in hunting and racing.
