A color print of the year 1930, issued by Frost and Reed of Bristol and London, titled "The Pytchley Huntsman--Frank Freeman on Pilot", after a painting by the famous English equestrian artist ALFRED JAMES MUNNINGS (1878-1959), measuring 20" by 19 3/4" inside the existing linen mat and 31" by 30 1/2" in the wood framing. The print is NOT pencil signed. Munnings is perhaps the pre-eminent painter of all things horses, at least among 20th century artists. Oils have exceeded three million dollars at auctions of sporting art. Munnings was a master at handling of paint, and combined that with a love and understanding of all things equestrian. These prints often are found with chemical or light-caused color changes, tending towards the greenish/yellowish, as seen in this example. I did examine it out of the frame and note that the margins of the sheet are age discolored and soiled, but the image area is fine. Should be shipped without glass for safety. Wood frame has wear but you could likely sand and re-stain if you are handy.
