    Can anyone tell me what would be the correct "name" for this type of English print? I have 2 of them that I inherited. They were given to my father in the early 1960s by a Brigadier General who served in WWII and who died in 1964. They are obviously steeplechase prints and the jockeys have signed them on the bottom under their place in the picture. I don't know if they have some sort of specific category in British artwork. I don't even know how to categorize them in this section since nothing seems to fit.

      What is the title above the signatures?
    2. Streganonna Streganonna, 5 years ago
      It says: Our Gentlemen Steeplechase Riders. It's a lithograph published December 1, 1885 by F. G. McQueen and it's engraved by E. G. Heater.
    3. aghcollect aghcollect, 5 years ago
      The original painting was by artist George Veal (active 1820-1886) - you have a colored engraving (E. Hester not Heater) - what is interesting is you have the signatures too, which seems to be unusual for this specific reprint. - You say you have "2" - are they both of the same painting or is the other a different one?
    4. Streganonna Streganonna, 5 years ago
      Yes, Hester. The "a" was a typo. The two are different. This one has 12 riders over a jump and the other has 16 riders walking their mounts to the starting line. The jockeys signatures are different on both prints. The second one is signed and dated (1885) by Veal and published Dec 14, 1885.

      Is there a "genre" that these would fall into? Were they commonly produced?
    5. aghcollect aghcollect, 5 years ago
      I assume the other one is titled "Our Leading Jockeys of the Day" - I see these on a Sotheby's Auction site described as "color aqua-tint engravings with facsimile signatures of featured jockeys in the lower margin" - try google "George Veal artist"

      Great job Agh!!! She needs to mark this 'Mystery Solved'. These are pretty special!
    7. Streganonna Streganonna, 5 years ago
      She did, indeed! And the second one is the title she mentioned. Thanks so much for the help.
