A Lionel Edwards lithograph depicting the South Notts Hunt – part of the artist’s ‘Hunting Countries’ series.

The South Notts country lies in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire and has been hunted as far back as 1677 by the Earl of Lincoln. In 1775 it was hunted by John Musters, the great-grandfather of John Chaworth-Musters, and in 1860 Mr. John Chaworth-Musters re-established the hunt.

Lionel Edwards was a British artist who specialised in pictures of country life, particularly horses, and provided illustrations for Country Life. He is best known for his hunting scenes but also painted pictures of horse racing, shooting and fishing.

Condition: print good; original handsome period frame.
