Tom Carr was a painter of hunting and racing scenes. He was born in Durham and worked as a blacksmith at Preistman Collieries, before sustaining an injury which saw him admitted to hospital, where he took up drawing and painting. He decided to become an artist and went to study at King’s College, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, using the compensation money from his injury to pay for his tuition. Carr became known for his energetic hunting scenes, and earned the patronage of the Dukes of Beaufort and Northumberland.
Condition: generally very good.
