Mambrino lithograph c1874, after painting by George Stubbs.

by George Stubbs

Superb portrait of Mambrino, bred by Lord Grosvenor.. from the picture by George Stubbs, in the possession of the Marquis of Westminster, at Eaton Hall.

Original colour-printed lithograph by Vincent Brooks, Day & Son, after the oil painting by George Stubbs. Published for S. Sidney’s “The Book of the Horse” printed by Cassell, Petter, Galpin & Co of London, Paris and New York circa 1874.

At the end of the nineteenth century, the quality of superb chromolithographic illustrations for publication was exceptional. Many of the colour-printed lithographs for Cassells Book of the Horse were finished with hand-colour and highlighting. They are some of the finest illustrations that have ever been printed of horses.

Image measures approximately 17 x 22cm (approximately 6 ¾ x 8 ¾ inches). Page size is 21 x 27cm (8 ¼ x 10 5/8 inches). There is a slight tear at the left edge which has been reinforced by conservation repair tape. It would be outside the window when framed. Otherwise this antique print is in fine condition.
