1909 "The King's Derby" Photogravure after Painting by G.D. Giles

This hand-colored, photogravure print titled "The King's Derby", after the original oil painting by George Douglas Giles, captures the energy and elegance of horse racing. Depicting the Derby of 1909, this stylized rendering of the horses, jockeys, and crowd shows the wild enthusiasm of the scene, where King Edward's own thoroughbred, Minoru, upset the heavy favorite (and American-owned) Sir Martin.

The period gold frame complements the warm tones of the scene as the horses race across the finish line.

Framed dimensions: 25 7/8" H x 37" W x 1 3/4" D
