Sir Alfred Munnings was born in East Anglia in 1878 and revealed artistic talents from an early age. At the age of 14 years he became a poster artist and many examples of his posters can be seen at Castle House Museum, Debham, Colchester, the former home of Munnings. In 1898, he had his painting "Stranded" accepted and hung by the Royal Academy and this was the first of his 230 paintings hung there.
Since 1919, he has been famed for his painting of racehorses but in the period before this he was known for all aspects of rural scenes....skies, landscapes, animal and human character portrayal.
