John Alexander Harington Bird was famous for his paintings of horses, particularly Arabs. He also painted racing and hunting scenes. Educated in London and initially destined to follow a military career, Bird suddenly turned his interest to art and first studied at the Royal Academy Schools.

In 1875 he went to Montreal, Canada, where he took the post of Director of Art on the Board of School Commissions. Bird exhibited at the Royal Canadian Academy and became an Associate member in 1880. Bird returned to London in 1885, where he spent the rest of his life.

During these years he exhibited at the Royal Academy and the Royal Society of British Artists, Suffolk Street. Several prints were published after his work including The Queen's Race Winners, a series of thirteen portraits of racehorses with jockeys up. Bird was also an accomplished illustrator.
