Comments: This lively print by the celebrated artist Cecil Aldin depicts a crowd heading to the Bluemarket Races. Made in 1901 and printed in 1902, the print features people from a wide range of ages and social classes: regal young couples ride in horse-drawn carriages, an old man with peg-legs drives a rickshaw pulled by two dogs, and children run and gallop on donkeys. To the left, a man tries in vain to pull an older couple's carriage out from the muddy grass. The print's vibrant color complements the vivacious and often humorous scene it depicts. It is in good condition, with stains and tears limited to the margins, not affecting the image. Cecil Charles Windsor Aldin (1870-1935) was a British artist and illustrator known for his paintings and sketches of animals, sports, and rural life. A skilled huntsman, Aldin often depicted horses and dogs in his watercolor drawings and prints. This print is a lovely example of his work.
