Ascot by Graham Isom.


Ascot by Graham Isom.

Graham Isoms latest limited edition in his Racecourses ofthe United Kingdom series features one of the greatest of all courses, Ascot. Ascot was founded in 1711 by Queen Anne, who noticed a natural clearing near to the village of East Cote, now called Ascot, whilst out riding on the edge of Windsor Great Park. An enthusiastic patron of the relatively new sport, the Queen ordered a course to be laid out for horses to gallop at full stretch and thus the Royal Racecourse was born. The first four-day Royal Meeting was held in June 1768 and the meeting has continued to the present day. Today Ascot stages 25 days of the highest quality flat and National Hunt racing each year, including the world-famous Royal Meeting each June. An atmospheric blend of top class thoroughbreds and high fashion, the Royal Meeting offers over 2.5 million in prize money and no fewer than 15 Group races, including a Group One on each of the four days. This painting depicts The King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes at Ascot in July 1999, in which the grey, Daylami, ridden by Frankie Dettori, Nedawi, ridden by Gary Stevens, and Fruits of Love, ridden by Olivier Peslier, battle for supremacy in a race eventually won by Daylami.

Graham Isom

Graham Isom is possessed of what has been described by Horse and Hound magazine as a tremendous ability to paint horses in action. Graham Isom was born in 1945, in Kent. and brought up around his fathers riding school. where he first developed his love of horses. He studied at Ravensboune College of Art, where he specialised in sculpture. Having left college, he went through a series of jobs. including working as a groom in a stables on Dartmoor, labouring on a building site and running a shoe shop, and it was not until the late 1960s that he returned to the art world, when he taught sculpture and painting to A-level students in Dorset. After five years as a teacher, his private commissions increased sufficiently to enable bun to devote all his tinie to painting. For two years he specialised in figure studies but he turned freelance in 1973 and was able to concentrate increasingly on equestrian subjects. His commissions have included work for many stables, owners and even for the Officers Mess of the Household Cavalry. A regular award winner, Grahain Isom was decorated by the American Academy of Equine Artists in every year from 1990-1993. In 1993 alone he received a trio ol a,s ards: Best Racing Picture, Best Sporting Picture and Most Popular Picture.
