Full Cry Original watercolour attributed to Samuel Howitt. A lovely small watercolour from this early sporting artist. A label on the reverse of the frame implies that it was formerly in the collection of a member of the British Royal family. It could have been added by someone but it looks genuine to me. However another version of this painting was sold by Christies in New York in 2009 also stating it was from a noble collection. In my opinion this version though very similar has greater delicacy and softness. It was and is, not unusual for an artist to paint the same painting more than once. If it is successful and someone else asks for a copy a hard up artist will be only too ready to oblige. It is much easier to paint a second copy than to compose a new painting. A charming little painting. Framed size 17x21ins 43x53cms. SOLD
