A fine depiction of a black stallion named ‘Lord Derby’ painted around 1900, I am not certain if this horse belonged to Lord Derby but as a legendary race horse owner, it could well have done.

Lord Derby was a dark brown Hackney Stallion foaled in 1871 and entered in Volume 1 of the Hackney Stud Book No 417. He was a big prize winner in Yorkshire

I purchased this portrait some time ago and it was in quite poor condition. It has now been relined and restored by a professional of the old school. I purchased this together with another famous race horse named ‘Sceptre’ by Alex Clark, which is also available. Unframed, signed lower left, titled centre ‘Lord Derby’

Size: H30.5cm L40.6cm
Albert Clark specialized in oil paintings of horses however there are a selection of cattle portraits and smaller number of dog portraits recorded. He received commissions to paint race horses which sometimes also depicted their riders. He also painted portraits of the prize winners of the Islington Horse Show, annually held at Islington near his home. Albert Clark died on December 18th 1928 at North Middlesex Hospital, he was aged 85.
