The English Scene: Sir Alfred James Munnings’s Inspiration

Launch Slideshow

In 1947, London’s Leicester Galleries launched The English Scene, an expansive exhibition of Sir Alfred James Munnings’s work. It would prove to be the most successful and profitable exhibition of Munnings’s career, demonstrating the artist’s prominent place in the art world. Spanning over four decades of the artist’s œuvre, many of the works from The English Scene will feature in Sotheby’s European Art sale this autumn. Inspired by England’s rural fields and racetracks, these paintings vividly depict the evolution of Munnings’s personal style.
