Spirit of Cheltenham - Standard Size

by Brett Lohn
Limited Edition Print - Standard Size

The inspiration behind the original oil painting was a desire to recreate the unique atmosphere of racing at Cheltenham Racecourse: the home of jump racing. Cleeve Hill is an ever-present guardian over events at Cheltenham, dominating the racecourse landscape. Whilst making the horses the subject of the painting, Brett has tried to give Cleeve Hill that same dominance over the viewer’s subconscious that one experiences in the flesh when attending a meeting there.

Brett’s philosophy when painting is that he wants to produce a window into a living, breathing world. There is nothing static, everything can be felt: from the excitement of the horses racing, to the temperature of the late January air. That is why it was so important, throughout the full year spent on the painting, for him to be able to work from life, bringing his easel repeatedly to the centre of the course.

This limited edition fine art print is produced on 300gsm archival paper using the exclusive giclee method of reproduction. It has been created so that its exact size is A2 (594mm by 420mm) and will consequently fit into a readymade A2 frame. The image itself measures 514mm by 315mm. There is a white border around the image that increases the overall size to A2. This fine art print can also be taken to a framer for a bespoke frame.

Please note that the Equine Art Company watermark does not appear on the actual product.
