About the Artist:
Thomas George Soper, England (1870-1942), was a print maker and etcher, as well as a painter and illustrator of books and periodicals.
Soper specialized in the activities of the rural environment and rustic scenes. He especially liked horses, particularly hauling ones, working country people and depictions of animals in motion.
Soper’s etchings are considered to be among the finest of their time. He was a regular exhibitor at the prestigious Royal Academy as well as being a full member of the Royal Engravers. [DES-11/14]
