Thomas Blinks was born in 1860 and was regarded as one of the best sporting artists of his generation, the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Painting from life and largely self-taught, Blinks was a leading animal and sporting painter specializing in painting hunting scenes and was considered one of the best Victorian painters of foxhounds. Observing the horses race at Tattersalls helped him to capture the true nature of the animal, the realism and accurate observation made his work very popular. He began exhibiting in London at The Dudley Gallery from 1881 with exhibitions following at The Royal Society of Artists and The Royal Academy where he showed from 1883 to 1910. He collaborated on more than one occasion with Fred Roe, Roe painting the portraits and Blinks the horses. Blinks was one of the few artists to portray George V in the hunting field.
