BROOKS, Henry Jermyn

BROOKS, Henry Jermyn Henley Regatta - the Start Including the Key Plate

Dickinson & Foster, 1894.

44 x 74cm. An original hand-coloured lithograph printed and coloured by Dickinson & Foster. Mounted and framed. With the corresponding key plate (25 x 36cm). A fine example, coloured well, with a little spotting to the margins. The key plate with slightly more spotting. Both framed in early oak frames and glazed.

One of the suite of four lithographs of Henley Regatta produced by Dickinson and Foster in 1893 after oils by Henry Jermyn Brooks. The four original oil paintings of Regatta scenes from 1891 and 1892, were exhibited at The Church Institute in Henley-on-Thames during the 1893 Regatta.
A contemporary review of the exhibition in the Henley Advertiser commented "I am impressed with their great interest to boating men, and with their genuine historical value. They will hand down to posterity a faithful representation of what Henley was like at the end of the nineteenth century..."
Describing this picture, which shows Trinity Hall and the Thames Rowing Club about to start the 1891 Stewards final, the reviewer continued "the well-known Island forms a pleasing background, its willows rustle softly in the summer air; the water gleans and sparkles in the sunlight; the whole picture is true to nature and pleasant to look upon" (Henley Advertiser, Saturday 3rd June 1893).
Uncommon, especially so with the original key, naming the rowers and officials.
