This charming early 19th-century painting by British artist Edwin Moseley Fox depicts a chestnut mare and a grey mare in a landscape. They’re entwined like old friends as they rest in the shade of a gnarled oak tree.
Fox probably produced this work for a commission and it once hung in a fine period home in Regency Cheltenham.
The painting is signed/dated and housed within a beautiful foliate frame.
