Ferneley, John Sr - Brass with the Cottesmore Hounds

Fine Art Prints of Distinction


A Museum Quality Print of Lord Lonsdale's Fleabitten Grey Hunter, Brass, at Cottesmore with the Cottesmore Hounds by John Ferneley Sr. This oil on canvas was finished by the English artist in 1818 with the size of the original artwork being 34 by 41 1/2 inches. William Lowther, 1st Earl of Lonsdale, was one of the most significant figures in the history of hunting. In 1788 he bought the famous pack of the Cottesmore hunt from the Earl of Gainsborough and except for a short four year break, he served as Master of the hunt for an astonishing fifty seasons. He retired with great reluctance in 1842 at the age of 85. He took great pains over the correct breeding of his hounds and did much to increase the fame and popularity of the Cottesmore hunt. His position as master was greatly helped by a series of family inheritances which left him in the early 19th century as one of the richest men in England, with an annual income of over 100,000 pounds. During this time he acquired his family seat in Westmorland, Lowther Hall. William Lowther lived from 1757 to 1844.
