Kingcraft. Winner of the Derby Stakes at Epsom 1870... By King Tom out of Woodcraft. The Property of Lord Falmouth - Trained by Matthew Dawson - Ridden by T. French
London: L. Braill & Sons, [no date but 1870?]. Aquatint engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, after a photograph by Mason. Image size (including text): 16 7/8 x 22 5/8 inches. Sheet size: 19 1/2 x 23 1/4 inches.
A fine quality aquatint by an unidentified engraver.
Braill and Sons here continue a tradition, established by the Fullers and Ackermann in the 1820s, of providing a top quality aquatint portrait of the winner of Britain's greatest classic race over the flat. A sign of the times, however is that the image from which the print was made was provided by a photographer, rather than a painter.
