Comments: This print by the celebrated artist Cecil Aldin depicts the lively crowd that has gathered in the time between two of the horse races. People of all ages and social classes gather in the fairground. To the right, a fight between a drummer and a man appears almost ready to break out. Elsewhere, clowns and jesters amuse the crowd, two young boys watch an early film TKTKTKTK, and people gather and chat animatedly in small groups. 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.

As an Interior Decorator I am on the constant lookout for source material for my clients. I recently completed a Studio pied a terre in the Georgian period for Mr. David Brown at Lincoln Center. That is, we were almost finished with only the artwork to be designed and purchased. I have a passion for antique architectural prints and I can't believe that I didn't know about Argosy Books. After all Designers don't really like to share their finds with others. I was in a cab, looking out the window as we passed by Argosy Books and noticed a fine selection of framed prints hanging in the window. I had found my oasis! I now head first to Argosy for all my print work and framing. What a treasure and a real lifesaver for design business! Thanks eternal. - Aaron James
