Cuthbert Bradley
(English, 1861 -1943 )

Born in Lincolnshire, Bradley's father was the Rev. Edward Bradley, Vicar of Lenton, who was better known by the "nom de plume" of Cuthbert Bede.

Bradley took a degree at King's College, London and became an architect, although his interest lay in horses, hunting and art. In 1895 he married Lucy Heathcote, whose family owned the Folkingham Estates, and they moved into The Lodge at Folkingham where they spent the rest of their lives. He was entirely self-taught. He became a sporting journalist and under the name of "Whisper" contributed regularly to The Field, and a number of other publications.

Bradley had a deep love and understanding of hunting which is reflected in his work, and he was particularly good on hound portraiture; his horses are also good and show plenty of action. He was not in the top rank with contemporaries of his period and at times his was colouring is poor.
