To Richard Hill Esqr. of Thornton This Portrait of John Booth is respectfully Dedictated, By. Robert Sunter
R. Sunter, [London] 1842 - A characterful portrait of the huntsman, John Booth, his horse and a number of his hounds. John Ferneley, with the encouragement of the Duke of Rutland studied under Benjamin Marshall for three years before travelling and painting in England and Ireland. He settled in Melton Mowbray in 1814. He "painted the Leicester hunting fraternity and their activities for nearly fifty years with great success and popularity. He also painted thoroughbreds, many of which were engraved by Edward Duncan. and published in Ackermann's short-lived series of racehorse portraits. In the hierarchy of horse painters Ferneley's work. [is] more consistently excellent than portraits by J.F. Herring Snr." (Lane) Siltzer p.121.
