A view of his Grace the Duke of Kingston's house at Thoresby, with his Grace & attendants going a setting. circa 1770; Line engraving, by Pritchard.
This is a reduced version of a view (on two plates) published (according to Siltzer) by Sayer with an image area of 28 1/2 x 16 inches. Peter Tillemans "came to England from Antwerp in 1708. His first commissions were to paint topographical views... Each required figures to give life to the well-painted landscapes and what was more natural than to show some of the people mounted... his large and busily populated pictures of Newmarket Heath have considerable charm. The influence of his friend John Wotton is most pronounced in his horse portraiture while his compositions owe something to Francis Barlow. Tillemans' patrons included all the principal race-horse owners of the period... He must have known Newmarket well, already established as the home of the turf... Tillemans' influence on later sporting artists is considerable... The engravings after his Newmarket paintings provide a fascinating record of training and horse management when the turf was developing quickly in the hands of the aristocracy of the period."
