George Paice was born in Pimlico, London in 1854. He was from a wealthy family and studied at the Heatherley School of Fine Art and at the Royal Academy from 1905-1910. He exhibited at the Royal Academy and Royal Society of British Artists, a move which effectively kick started his career as he gained the patronage of wealthy clients. From then onwards he received so many commissions for horse and dog portraits from the aristocracy that he rarely exhibited after that. He took a keen interest in sport particularly horse racing which helped develop his eye for anatomical detail. In addition to horse portraiture he also produced a number of point-to-point scenes. In 1879, he married Eunice Mary Stuart with whom he had 8 children. His son Philip Stuart (1884–1940) also became an artist.
Although Paice’s wealth was considerably affected by World War 1, he continued to paint until his death. In 1924, he was commissioned to depict the year’s Derby winner ‘Sansovino’, illustrating not only that he was able to maintain his fine quality of work throughout his life but also that he was held in high regard. Many of his paintings can be found in private collections and a number are held by the Leeds Museum, Liverpool Museum and the National Trust.
The paintings are housed in their original oak frames which are in excellent condition.
