- MARSHALL, Benjamin
- Benjamin Marshall was a British sporting painter who was a pupil of Abbot and travelled in Italy, but was principally influenced by Stubbs, and, in his brushwork, Raeburn. In 1819 he was crippled in a coach smash. He also wrote on horse racing, which was almost exclusively the subject of his pictures, but he found 'many a man who will pay me fifty guineas for painting his horse, who thinks ten guineas too much for painting his wife'.
There are examples in the Royal Coll. and in Baltimore, Canterbury, Leicester, London (Tate), San Marino Cal., Toronto, Upton Park nr Banbury (NT) and Yale (CBA).
