Samuel Alken was a famous English artist who specialized in aquatint engravings in 18th Century England. He lived from 1756-1815 and was famous for his interpretation of sporting subjects and coaching scenes. We love how he elongates the racing horses, capturing their beauty and grace… it’s part folk art and part “poetry in motion”.
