A Bay Hunter in a Landscape

An early 19th century portrait of a bay hunter in a landscape, presumably Yorkshire. Signed D. Dalby, lower left, and dated indistinctly, 182*. Within a good gilt moulding frame with leaf back edge, bead and leaf site; period and probably original to the work.
o.s: 36.5 in x 31.5 in
s.s: 29.5 in x 24.5 in
In 1815 David Dalby was listed in the York directory as an animal painter living outside Micklegate Bar. He moved to Leeds for a brief period following offence caused to the local sherrif by a caricature he produced. He painted mostly horses and racehorse settings, equestrian portraits and hunting scenes. He was considered to be in his prime during the 1820s, although his work continued to fetch large sums through to the end of the 19th century. In 1820 he painted 'The Berkeley Hounds in Kennel,' in 1821 'The London and Edinburgh Mail Coach' and in 1824 he produced a set of three paintings depicting 'Lord Harewood's Hunt.'

Walpoles is an antiques business that has been established for more than 35 years with an extensive stock which can be divided into three broad themes: "The Army" encompassing colonial furniture and works of art, folk art of the British soldier as well as campaign furniture, pictures and objects of a military theme; "The Navy" covering fine and folk art associated with the British Royal and Merchant Navy fleets as well as fine art and objects that fall under a title of "The China Trade"; and finally there is an established core of furniture, pictures and works of art typical of "The English Country House".

Founded by Graham Walpole, the business first set up in Church Street, in London’s Marylebone, and by the end of the 1980s had moved to Westbourne Grove, from where they dealt until the turn of the last century. In 2004 Walpoles relocated to their home town of Greenwich and joined the British Antiques Dealers Association but now work from 111 Portobello Road.
