Tom Carr, Hunting, Racing and Military Artist was born in 1912. Carr spent his early years in the colliery as a blacksmith and the war years making anchors for the Navy. Due to general ill health, Carr went to King’s College, Newcastle where he was awarded a certificate in fine art. Read More
Carr specialised predominantly in hunting scenes, mainly of the Northern Hunts (The Jed Forest and the Braes of Derwent), but works also exist of the Dukes of Beauforts, The Quorn, The North Northumberland and of the Heythrop, having spent two seasons with the latter. He also frequented many races and point to point, examples of which are also available.
Tom Carr also studied dry point etching under George Vernon Stokes and produced many limited editions etchings of his hunting scenes in small editions, making them highly collectible. Etchings also exist of gun dogs and shooting scenes, though not of the quality of his hunt etchings.
Carr’s original work comes rarely onto the market but when it does is usually highly priced.
