A Pair of Late 19th Century Hunting Scenes by Philip Rideout (1850-1920)

Philip Rideout is known for his slightly naïve paintings of hunting scenes . Usually they are a lot smaller than these two. These would have been painted at the end of the 19th. Century. The lady in blue is the Empress of Austria, known as Sissy, she was the wife of Frans Joseph.
This hunt took place at Combermere in Cheshire – a stately home owned at the time by Sir Watkin Winn. The Empress’s chef had once worked for Sir Watkin and when she was looking for a suitable place to go hunting in England, he suggested Combermere. Apparently, he and his predecessors rented the property out to royalty from all over Europe for the hunting season.
The huntsman is the renowned Bay Middleton.
This pair of oil paintings are of particular historical interest as well as having a traditional appeal.
