Lester by Susan Crawford.


Lester by Susan Crawford.

Susan Crawfords latest limited edition depicts legendary jockey Lester Piggott in the colours of the late Lord Howard de Walden, for whom he rode 39 winners. Lord Howard de Walden was a good friend and patron and this subject was painted by the artist in his memory. The original painting was auctioned in November 2000 to raise money for The Sir Peter OSullevan Charitable Trust. The Trust benefits six animal welfare charities around the world: The Blue Cross, the Brooke Hospital for Animals in Cairo, Compassion in World Farming, the International League for the Protection of Horses, the Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Centre and Racing Welfare Charities.

Susan Crawford

Susan Crawford is one of Britains finest contemporary equestrian artists. Born in the Scottish district of East Lothian in 1941, she grew up on the family farm on which her parents trained racehorses. She learned to ride in her infancy and soon began to express her passion for horses on canvas. Apart from her two year training at the Florentine drawing school of Signorini Nera Suni, Susan Crawlord is entirely self-taught. She has exhibited at a number of distinguished galleries throughout the world, including The National Portrait Gallery, The Royal Academy of Arts. The Tryon Gallery, London, and The National Gallery of Pahang Pinang, Malaysia. Amongst her many fine works, Susan Crawford has painted twenty-one Epsom Derby winners and great steeple-chasers including Red Rum, Arkle and Desert Orchid. However, despite her high profile as an equestrian artist, she is also well-established as a painter of portraits. Sue has painted five members of the British Royal family, including HM Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, HM The Queen and HRH The Prince of Wales, as well as HH The Sultan of Brunei and HM The Sultan of Oman.
