Oil Paintings by Maureen Riley




The idea of sporting art as I use the term, focuses on the 19th century and those paintings that focused on the countryside, sporting dogs, horses and hounds. From those traditions I find inspiration for my work.

Starting first with sculpture, I now include the exploration of expression in painting. This section focuses on the sporting dog in paintings. Painters such as Cecil Aldin, A.J Munnings, George Earl, Maud Earl, Percival Leonard Rousseau, John Emms, Ruben Binks, Thomas Blinks and Gustav Muss –Arnolt brought us beautiful paintings of setters, springers, cockers, pointers, hounds and terriers. These artists are inspirations for my work and I hope to continue in their footsteps and also bring something new to this traditional genre.
