Original works of art

Edwin Frederick Holt
(English, 1830 -1912 )

Edwin Frederick Holt was born in Hampstead in 1830 and lived most of his adult life in Dunstable. He studied at the Royal Academy of Art, where he won the silver medal in 1854. He exhibited seven pictures at the Royal Academy, twelve at the British Institution and forty at the Royal Society of British Artists and was a regular exhibitor at the British Institution and Suffolk Street Gallery.

Later in his career, he devoted his attention to animals and painted many sporting subjects, farm animals and domestic pets. Much of his later work is characterized by a bold painterly style.
