About

Edwin Moseley Fox British, (1805-1870) The Morning Ride Oil on canvas, signed & dated 1855 Image size: 24.5 inches x 29.5 inches Size including frame: 31.75 inches x 36.75 inches In this work we see a gentleman in a brown riding jacket and blue cravat donning his gloves in readiness for an early morning ride. Fox has chosen to set the scene inside the stable courtyard of the gentleman’s stately home. The view is extended through the archway, allowing us a glimpse of the path and landscape beyond. Meanwhile, the groom holds the reins of a black horse who waits patiently, having already been saddled up. Like the horse, two of the dogs appear remarkably unconcerned about what is taking place in the courtyard. However, the black whippet seems unable to contain his excitement at the prospect of a run. Edwin Moseley Fox was born in Aston, Birmingham in January 1805, the son of John and Ann Fox. His middle name is mistakenly reported by some sources as being May, however Moseley is the name he was born with and which is listed on his marriage and baptism records as well as in local trade directories of the time. He married Caroline Goodhall in Birmingham on 7 September 1835. They lived with their four children at Laurel Terrace, Lichfield Road in Aston, Birmingham. Little is known about his early education but he began exhibiting at the Birmingham Society Arts in 1837 and by 1841 had established himself as a full time animal painter. Around this time he also began advertising in the local trade directories and seems to have enjoyed considerable success gaining commissions for portraits of horses and prize animals such as cattle. He died on 24 January 1870 at his home in Lichfield Road and was buried at the St Mary and St Margaret Churchyard in Castle Bromwich. Examples of his work are held by the National Trust. 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
