New York | 12 & 13 November 2018
Launch Slideshow

Sir Alfred James Munnings’ ability to render the excitement of owners, trainers, and horses in the paddock has made him the unquestioned master of the English race track. Epsom Downs remains synonymous with British horse racing, home to the Derby and The Oaks, two of the five British racing Classics. This November, Sotheby’s is honored to present three paintings that combine these icons of British sporting art.

Click ahead to view in depth three works by Sir Alfred J Munnings in our upcoming sales of Impressionist and Modern Art on 12 and 13 November 2018.
