Wright George

Year working: Lived 1860 - 1942

George Wright was one of five children and the elder brother of Gilbert Scott Wright who he sometimes combined with on sporting paintings. Like his brother his art was centred on horse, hunting and sporting pursuits. Many paintings were painted grisaille (grey and white) which gives the impression that they were illustrations for books or magazines. He was known to be one of the best sporting painters of his era so it is not surprising that he combined motor vehicles into his paintings.
