Lord Burghley’s hounds, ‘Ranter’ and ‘Agent’; and ‘Welfare’ and ‘Starlight’, by Lionel Dalhousie Robertson Edwards (1878-1966).

Black chalk and watercolour, heightened with bodycolour on grey paper, 24.8 x 33cm.
Both signed with monogram, inscribed with title and dated 1938.

The artist, who was a keen fox hunter, was perhaps best known for his hunting scenes.

He specialised in painting horses and depicted all aspects of sporting country life.

Lord Burghley (1905-1981), was involved with hunting throughout his life and was Master of several packs of hounds.

On the death of his father, in 1956, he became 6th Marquess of Exeter and formed his own pack at Burghley.
