19th century English oil on canvas, artist unknown. Greyhounds and hare with huntsman, castle town and highlands in the background. School of Stubbs, Manner of Charles Towne (perhaps a contemporary or follower.) Compare the present composition with a work of Charles Towne, Christie's sale 7200, lot 51. In both, two greyhounds are depicted in the foreground with a hare and in the distant background are huntsmen on horseback, castle or fortified structures, highlands, and light centered by gathering, gray clouds. This painting in need of cleaning (should bring out a lot ... perhaps a signature too) and light conservation. The canvas has never been laid down and has one, small patch. Stretcher size, about 24 1/8 inches by 26 inches. Frame size, about 30 1/4 inches by 32 1/4 inches. The frame also needs to be cleaned and touched up.
