Footnotes

  • Cundall trained in Manchester before attending the Royal College of Art and the Slade in London, where the artist developed his adept ability to capture the bustle of busy scenes, as in the accomplished Bank Holiday Brighton(Tate Gallery, London).

    The artist painted race scenes throughout his career, with Derby Day (1933, Government Art Collection) and The Derby from St. Dunstan's stand (Private Collection) serving as two well executed examples. The present view of Ascot, with the iconic Clock Tower looming in the background, and the large 'Runners and Riders board' opposite the stands illustrates Cundall's interest in the sport by capturing the inherent bustle and excitement of the busy scene, all bathed in a rich summer light. The appearance of the bookmakers 'joints' in the centre of the composition serves to suggest a date of circa 1920s.
