National Horseracing Museum Stages Kemp-Welsh Exhibit

'Mixed Company at a Race Meeting' by Lucy Kemp-Welsh | National Horseracing Museum

The National Horseracing Museum in Newmarket will stage the first major retrospective of paintings by Lucy Kemp-Welch, considered Britain's best female equine painter. Kemp-Welsh is perhaps best known for her illustrations of Black Beauty in Anna Sewell's famous novel.

The exhibition, titled “In her own voice: the art of Lucy Kemp-Welch,” will be open from Oct. 21 through Feb. 25, 2024. Several of the paintings are on display to the public for the first time and visitors to The National Horseracing Museum can view over 60 pieces from Kemp-Welch's lifetime, several on loan from private and public collections, including The Imperial War Museum, The Tate, Bushey Museum and Art Gallery (where she studied under Hubert von Herkomer) and Southampton City Art Gallery

The exhibition is included with general admission. For more information visit the National Horseracing Museum website.
