An obvious inspiration to Andre Pater has been the sporting art of Sir Alfred Munnings, undoubtedly one of the greatest British artists of the twentieth century and one of the most eminent equestrian artists of all time. Taking as his theme the beautiful hunting scenes with which Munnings made his reputation, Andre Pater has added a contemporary and uniquely American twist to the superb draughtsmanship and almost Impressionistic emphasis on light and colour which characterises both artists’ work. Titled in full Ned and the Long Run Hounds, this painting is actually a portrait of Ned Bonnie, Master at the time of painting of the Long Run Hounds in Louisville, near to the artist’s base in the heartland of the American equestrian world, Kentucky. Ned Bonnie, and his wife Nina, have been great supporters and friends of Andre Pater since his first arrival in Kentucky.
