Prize Cattle in Landscape
Artist: Thomas Weaver
Thomas Weaver (1774-1843) was an English painter and draughtsman born in Shropshire, the son and grandson of farmers. He is said to have had some instruction from John Boultbee and particularly specialised in painting livestock although he was also a very capable equestrian artist. Among his patrons were the famous agriculturalist Thomas Coke, 1st Earl of Leicester, Viscount Anson and Sir Charles Bunbury.
These are obviously very important cattle but whose are they and why are they so special?
