Footnotes

  • Harry Hall was an equestrian artist known for his depictions of racehorses, especially winners. The horse pictured here is Lecturer, sired by Costerdale from Algebra and foaled in 1863. Amongst his racing achievements, such as winning the Cesarewitch, Stamford Cup and Queen's Plate at Northampton, in 1867, the year this picture was painted, Lecturer was winner of the Ascot Gold Cup. At the time, he was owned by the fourth Marquess of Hastings, a former member of the Jockey Club and a man known for his love of gambling and excitement. Although the jockey pictured upon Lecturer was not the one that rode him to victory in the 1867 Gold Cup, George Fordham, Hibberd competed in many races throughout his career.

    A reporter for the Sporting Review of 1867 states that when at Hall's studio, 'the gem of his easel is Lecturer with Hibberd up – certainly the nicest picture I have seen of his painting', and it was said to have truly captured Lecturer's appearance.
