Alfred Moginie Bryant, Mare & Foal In A Landscape

This charming country house painting by Engish artist Alfred Moginie Bryant (1855-1935) depicts a mare and foal in a landscape. Standing by an old timber-framed stable, the pair face each other with the mare’s head above the foal’s. It’s an affectionate scene - symbolic of maternal instincts and the love within families. When Bryant produced this, he was recently married and probably living in Eastbourne with his wife. Perhaps it was a commission for a local family or alternatively inspired by prevalent thoughts of his own.

It’s easy to imagine this once hanging proudly in a farmhouse or period home.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
