are delighted to have such outstanding artists represented in this
year's exhibition. In particular are excellent works by Harold Septimus
Power, an early contemporary of legendary sporting artist, Sir Alfred
Munnings, and two fine large canvases by John Sargent Noble. Perhaps
the most important art on view will be two paintings by the 20th
century artist American artist, Aiden Lassell Ripley, "Pheasant
Country" and "Setter on Point." He painted in Massachusetts
and has a large following of admirers throughout the US."
Frost & Reed will exhibit in Saratoga Springs for the 24th season....here

Frost made his first trip to the US in 1884 and through appearances
at leading art shows and equestrian events, including those at Radnor,
PA, Churchill Downs, KY and Saratoga Springs, NY. Frost & Reed
developed a large coterie of American clients interested in classical
as well as contemporary sporting art. The firm was established in
Britain in 1808 and has done half its business with Americans for
While the gallery is well established as dealers in original 19th
and 20th century Impressionist and Post Impressionist paintings,
it has taken pride in focusing on artists with whom it has had a
long and close association, including Sir Alfred Munnings, Montague
Dawson, Marcel Dyf and Heather St. Clair Davis, whose works will

fact, Frost & Reed will have a large selection of important
contemporary sporting art from two British equestrian artists,
Heather St. Clair Davis and Peter Smith, and a celebrated
American sporting artist, Booth Malone. Among these is Malone's
portrait of jockey Jose Santos, who rode the winning mount
in this year's Kentucky Derby.
Frost & Reed is sole agent for Peter Smith and was the
exclusive representative of the late Heather St. Clair Davis.
Booth Malone is an important American talent, having recently
been commissioned by The United States Equestrian Team to
create a series of paintings depicting action specific to
each of the Team's seven disciplines.
Other artists to be shown include George Garrard, descended
from Marcus Garrard, a painter to Queen Elizabeth I, John
Sargent Noble, considered to be one of the finest painters
of hounds and setters in the Victorian period, Heywood Hardy,
one of the most accomplished sporting painters spanning the
19th and 20th centuries, and highly regarded animal painter,
Jean Baptiste Louis Guy, who portrayed the true character
of the animals he painted with enormous sensitivity.
says Frost & Reed "Has always shown support for sporting
artists from both the US and abroad. Americans visiting our London
galleries over the four decades I've been there always ask about
the artists they've come to know through our shows in the US. It
is especially important to have had a hand in building the careers
of contemporary artists such as Heather St. Clair Davis, who has
been called a worthy successor to Munnings, and Peter Smith, with
whom we've worked for two decades. Booth Malone has a highly original
view and unusual approach to equine art which has captured the attention
of many collectors; we're delighted to be showing his works."
