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.
