Apache. Brown Colt 1939 (by Alcazar - Flying Song) . Bred and owned by William Woodward, Esquire
[New York: Frank J. Lowe], 1946 - Martin Stainforth is regarded as Australia's leading horse painter, although he was an established artist in his native England before emigrating in 1908. In 1925 he went to America for an extended stay, during which time he painted a number of leading horses, including some of the William Woodward stable which were reproduced as prints by The Derrydale Press. He was noted for his painstaking efforts in making numerous working sketches and watercolors until he felt he had the image just right. States Mitchell: "Stainforth's detail and accuracy in likeness were very fine and very natural. He avoided the pitfalls of flatness and photographic stiffness so often found in this type of work". Printed for William Woodward, a continuation of the series originally begun by The Derrydale Press; when the Press closed in 1942, Frank J. Lowe, its vice- president and sales manager, continued the production of high-quality prints, including additional ones for presentation by Mr. Woodward to his friends 17 x 19 inches to plate mark, with generous margins, 20 x 26 inches overall. Hand colored aquatint engraving, with engraved legend. Framed. Fine. Mitchell, British Equestrian Artists, pp. 407-08; Ordeman, p. 27
