Sir Alfred Munnings was a major figure in the great tradition of British horse painters.Famously prolific, controversial and immensely successful, the son of an East Anglian Miliner, he rose to become a popular scourge of modern art as President of the Royal Academy, Munnings was one of the great English characters of the last century. This is a unique appreciation of a highly collectible artist's work.
