EARL, George

Posted · Add Comment

George Earl (1824–1908)  was an animal and sporting painter. He appears to have been a gentleman of some means as he had two residences, one at Newman Street, London, and the other at Banstead, Surrey.

Many of Earl’s sporting pictures featured Highland and shooting scenes, but he also painted horse portraits which displayed particularly soft coats and which were of the Victorian style of the day.

Between 1856 and 1883, George Earl exhibited numerous paintings including Polo Match At Hurlingham at the Royal Academy.

George Earl’s daughter, Maud, inherited her father’s artistic talents and went on to become a successful animal painter.
