John Gregory King b1929
The Tiverton Hunt

A lovely pencil drawing by the extremely widely exhibited artist John King (see biography below). Signed bottom right and titled "The Tiverton". I guarantee this is an original pencil drawing by John King and not a print!

Dimensions: 14 inches by 10 inches (360mm by 260mm)

Condition: in good condition, the drawing has previously been mounted and there is evidence of this around the border, light creases etc.
