John Ferneley Junior was a dedicated sporting painter (1815-1862) He was the eldest son of John Ferneley Senior, and brother to Claude Lorraine Ferneley but little else is known about his life except that he worked in Manchester, York and Leeds.

His work is often confused with that of his father and it is believed that both father and son collaborated on many pictures. John Jnr. tended to sign his paintings John Ferneley whilst his father signed them J. Ferneley but John Jnr would sign his paintings in heavy black paint and would add either York or Jnr and sometimes both. It is likely that he received some of his earliest training with his father in the creation of the plates for the famous colour print series Count Sandor's Hunting Exploits in Leicestershire.

His works have reached up to £100,000 in auctions. Ferneley's paintings depicted hunting when it was extremely fashionable. This painting represents hunters with their dogs gathering for a days hunting.

Provenance: This particular piece came from a private collection of a stately home which was proudly displayed in a library.

It is signed and dated 184- but the last digit of the date is indistinct.
