John Wootton was one of England’s earliest native painters. He painted battle scenes and landscapes, but is best-known for his sporting subjects; a lucrative genre in an era when well-bred animals served as important status symbols for wealthy aristocrats. His patrons included several members of the Royal family, including Queen Caroline, who visited his studio in 1732. Wootton’s paintings recall the beauty of agrarian Britain as it stood on the cusp of the Industrial Revolution.
