Cheltenham by Graham Isom.


Cheltenham by Graham Isom.

Graham Isom has chosen to portray perhaps the greatest National Hunt course in the world in this, his latest limited edition. The magnificent Cheltenham Racecourse, known across the world as the home of National Hunt racing, offers 16 race meetings in a season lasting from October to April. Highlight of the racing calendar is the National Hunt Festival in March, which features the famous Cheltenham Gold Cup and Champion Hurdle. The racecourse itself is set in a natural bowl, to which the Cotswolds provide a spectacular backdrop. The brown and purple hills which stand in and around the course are justly famous and, whether in low mist or in the beautiful spring sunshine, the weather and landscape can combine to produce the most remarkable effects of light and colour on race-days. Always driven by his love of horses, Graham Isoms painting of Cheltenham specifically depicts two of the great horses in the 2000 Gold Cup: Florida Pearl, ridden by Paul Carberry, and the eventual victor, Looks Like Trouble, ridden by Richard Johnson and wearing number 7.

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.
