About the Item

Charles TOWNE (1763-1840, English) Hunter and Huntsman 1790 Oil on canvas Signed & dated Framed 39 x 55 inches Charles Towne was an English painter of landscapes, horses and other animals with a particular skill for horse racing and hunting scenes. Born in Wigan, his talent for art was apparent from a young age and he received some training from John Rathbone in Leeds. By the 1790s Towne was an established animal painter with a style reminiscent of Stubbs. He lived in London from 1799-1804, during which time he exhibited at the Royal Academy. His work was well regarded by his contemporaries including Joseph Farrington, but he was also noted as a man of “coarse, debased manners and conversation”.
