Epsom Downs, Derby Day

Epsom Downs, Derby Day

Location: Epsom, Surrey, UK

Subject: Sporting Scene

Medium: Watercolour

Date: 1930s

Signature: Knighton-Hammond

Dimensions: 47 cm x 62 cm

This picture is a typical 'behind the scenes' view of the Epsom race meeting on Derby Day. The people had more appeal to Knighton-Hammond than the actual horses and jockeys. The artist has painted the back view of tents and fairground attractions with the spectator stands in the background. A busy and colourful picture in which the people are going about their business.
