About

A BAY HORSE IN A LANDSCAPE - BY JOHN NOST SARTORIUS. A fine and highly detailed early 19th century study of a Bay Horse in a Landscape signed John Nost Sartorius Pinxt 1814. This lively painting of an attractive animal, has a good depth of colour and attention to light and shade. The elegant bay horse is set within an unusually detailed and evocative English landscape. Expertly conserved and presented in an antique gilt raking knull frame, this sensitively rendered and highly decorative painting is ready to hang and enjoy. John Nost Sartorius (1755–1828) The artist was an English painter of horses, horse-racing and hunting scenes, and he is considered the best-known and prolific of the Sartorius family of artists. The son of horse-artist Francis Sartorius and the grandson of John Sartorius, John Nost was patronised by the leading sportsmen of the day, such as the Prince of Wales, the Earl of Derby, Lord Foley, Sir Carkes Bunbury, and many others, and his pictures (some of them of large size) were found in many country houses. He preferred to be known as John N. Sartorius Jr. to distinguish himself from his father and grandfather. From 1781-1824 his name appeared as an exhibitor in the catalogues of the Royal Academy, and a list of the 74 pictures which he showed there can be found in Walter Gilbey’s "Animal painters of England from the year 1650, volume 2. The Sporting Magazine from 1795-1827 contained many engraved plates from his works by J. Walker, J. Webb, and others. Some of his best known pictures were portraits of the racehorse "Escape", belonging to the Prince of Wales, Sir Charles Bunbury's "Grey Diomed", a Mr. Robson's trotting mare "Phenomena", and the famous thoroughbred “Eclipse”, from a drawing by his father. "A Set of Four Hunting Pieces" after his pictures, was published in 1790 by J. Harris, the plates being engraved byPetro William Tomkins and James Neagle (1760?-1822). John N. Sartorius died in 1828. Of his sons John Francis Sartorius was also an equine artist while the younger, Francis Sartorius Jr. ("the Younger") was a marine artist. Higher resolution images on request.
