The Finish of the 1862 Derby

EDITORS COMMENTS
captures a thrilling moment in horse racing history. Painted by Samuel Henry Alken, this oil on board print depicts the intense climax of the renowned Epsom Derby. The atmosphere is electric as jockeys and their magnificent racehorses thunder towards the finishing post. The painting showcases a vibrant landscape filled with spectators eagerly watching from stands, creating a sea of anticipation. The crowd's excitement is palpable, their cheers blending harmoniously with the thundering hooves and heavy breathing of the horses. In this particular race, Caractacus emerges victorious under the skilled guidance of jockey John Parsons. As they cross that final line, triumph radiates from both man and beast alike. Alken's attention to detail brings every element to life - from each individual spectator to every muscle straining within these majestic animals. The Victorian era setting adds an air of nostalgia and elegance to this classic sporting event. This artwork not only celebrates horseracing but also captures a significant moment in English history. It serves as a testament to our enduring fascination with speed, competition, and our connection with these incredible creatures. Displayed proudly in private collections today, "The Finish of the 1862 Derby" continues to captivate viewers with its timeless depiction of athleticism, determination, and raw emotion on display during one unforgettable day at Epsom Downs Racecourse.
