Catalogue Note

Although firm biographical information relating to Samuel Spode is elusive, he is thought to have been a trainer on the Curragh, Co. Klare. Although it was common to supplement a trainer's income with another profession, more unusual was Spode's decision to take up painting, yet he developed a loyal following. In the following lot by Henry Alken, we have a delightful and rare sight of Spode the trainer.
