About

Edward Benjamin Herberte British, (1830-1896) Bay Hunter in a Stable Oil on canvas, signed & dated 1889 Image size: 19.25 inches x 29.25 inches Size including frame: 25.25 inches x 35.25 inches Edward Benjamin Herberte was born Egbert Bertram Herberte in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire in 1830. He was the son of an artist, also named Egbert Bertram Herberte and initially worked as a theatrical artist. It is not certain how or when he became known as Edward Benjamin Herberte, but this may have been a pseudonym he adopted to avoid confusion with his father. Around 1861, he was living in Wolverhampton, but later moved to Greenwich, London. After experiencing financial difficulties around 1866, he began earning his living as an artist painting hunting and sporting scenes and would often travel around. He won several commissions from local hunts including a number by the North Warwickshire Hunt, several of which are of views in Kenilworth. During the mid-19th century, the introduction of improved saddles enabled women to ride across country and over fences more securely and he was one of the first artists to depict this. In addition to his sporting scenes, he also painted a number of coaching scenes. He died at Prestwich, Lancashire in 1896. Examples of his work are held by the Berkswell Village Museum, the National Trust, Lanhydrock and Leicester Museum & Art Gallery. Presentation: The painting is housed in a new, English made gilt frame which is in excellent condition. Condition: As with all of our original antique oil paintings, this work is offered in ready to hang gallery condition, having just been professionally cleaned, restored and revarnished. © Benton Fine Art
