Self Portrait

Alfred James Munnings (1878–1959)

The Munnings Art Museum

(b Mendham, Suffolk, 8 Oct. 1878; d Dedham, Essex, 17 July 1959). English painter (and very occasional sculptor), a specialist in subjects involving horses. He was at the height of his popularity in the interwar years, when he cut a figure in fashionable society and was often invited to the grandest country houses to paint the owners with their horses (he was also besieged with commissions when he visited the USA in 1924).
