"The Parade" Horse Racing Painting by Roy Miller

About the Item

Signed lower right and inscribed verso. Ex Geary gallery Darien CT. Oil on canvas. As a member of the Society of Equestrian Artists (SEA) and the American Academy of Equine Art, Roy is an artist of international repute. Roy began work as a professional artist at the age of 14 while studying in the evenings at Manchester College of Art. In the early 1960s he moved to London and worked as a freelance artist and illustrator. He has had many exhibitions including the Royal Academy, but the turning point of his career was in 1972 when he visited a racecourse and fell in love with the ‘sport of kings’. Within three years his talents for equestrian painting were recognized and acclaimed and he became a full-time equestrian artist. Her Majesty the Queen has a painting of Roy’s in her own collection. Other commissions from The Hong Kong Jockey Club, the Coaching Club of Great Britain and the United Racecourse Group quickly followed. His solo exhibitions include The Melbourne Cup Festival in Australia, The Sporting Gallery of Virginia in the US and the National Stud in Newmarket, England.

  • 19th Century French Oil Painting, Horse Racing on the Beaches of Saint-Malo
    Located in Dallas, TX
    Saint-Malo, France is located on the Northern coast of Brittany and has a long history of overseas adventures, exploration, and of course, piracy. Saint-Malo eventually became a wealthy French port city over the centuries, allowing for such leisure activities as horse displays, including parading and racing. It is thought that horse racing on the beaches was taking place by at least the early 1800s in Saint-Malo. The oil on canvas painting seen here is a fantastic depiction of such an event during the 1840s. A giltwood frame with thick cavetto molding surrounds the colorful and vivacious scene. In the center of the painting, jockeys ride galloping horses between two flagpoles. There is a definitive international flair, with flags ranging from French to Swedish affixed to a judges’ platform on the side. In the foreground, a procession of petite noblesse arrives, led by a quartet of well-dressed gentlemen on horseback. Two carriages follow, one blue and one green, each led by a team of two horses. Soldiers dressed in blue overcoats and red pants walk the grounds with a leashed dog in tow as a woman in a long, deep blue dress rides by with a green train flowing from her black hat. A sea of spectators gathers behind the judges, lined against the wall surrounding the city. Some enterprising fans are perched atop pruned trees beneath the wall as well. A blue sky filled with white fluffy clouds fills the background, above even more spectators lining the balconies of buildings behind the wall. The wall extends further down the beach, in front of cream colored houses and windmills at the end of the city. At over three and a half feet wide, this 19th century painting of horse racing...
