Summary of A Stagecoach passing the Kings Arms

An oil on canvas painting of a stagecoach passing a public house with various onlookers. Painted by George Wright (1860-1942) in the early 20th century.

Full description

A Road Coach passes a village inn. The team is mixed with two greys, a bay and a chestnut. Passengers sit on the coach and the guard on the back is blowing a horn. To the left two men stand with greyhounds. The painting is quite fluid in its style and captures a certain amount of movement.  

Artist profile

George Wright (1860-1942) was one of five siblings, three of which were painters. He is especially well known for his hunting and coaching scenes painted in a lively manner. Wright favoured the same colour palette over and over for his paintings. It is bright and gives the impression that a warm summer light is casting over his subject matter.
