John Charles Maggs was a well-known coaching scene painter who was born at 5 James Street, Bath in 1819. His father, James Maggs was an artist and furniture japanner and his uncle was a portrait painter. He studied in Italy for 2 years before returning to Bath where he established himself as a painter and began to specialise in coaching scenes.
He ran a school of painting at his studio located at 34 Gay Street, known as the Bath Art Studio, where his daughter assisted him. Although he does not appear to have exhibited he enjoyed great popularity during his lifetime winning important patrons such as Queen Victoria, the Duke of Beaufort and Joseph Grego. He died at his home in Bath on 3 November 1896 aged 77.
A number of Magg’s popular coaching scenes were set in winter landscapes with snow. In this fine example, a Royal Mail stage coach has been caught in a snow drift and is unable to go any further. Happily, help is close at hand. One of the drivers has returned with another horse to help pull them to the safety of the village.

Presentation: The work is housed in a new, English made gilt frame which is in excellent condition.
