About

Restrike engraving of the original engraving by Henry Thomas Alken, an English painter and engraver chiefly known as a caricaturist and illustrator of sporting subjects and coaching scenes. His most prolific period of painting and drawing occurred between 1816 and 1831. Alken was born in 1785 in Soho, Westminster. From about 1816 onwards Alken produced an unending stream of paintings, drawings and engravings of every type of field and other sporting activity. When Alken was 26 he and his young family lived over a shop in Haymarket that belonged to famous print publisher Thomas McLean of the "Repository of Wit and Humour." McLean paid Alken a daily wage of thirty shillings, considered a good income at the time. Alken died in April 1851 and was buried in Highgate cemetery. Although fairly affluent for most of his career, he fell on hard times towards the end of his life and was buried at his daughter's expense
