Richard Hoare Jenkins (1777-1856), here mounted on the right, facing towards the middle of the picture, established a pack of hounds at Llanharan House, Glamorgan, in 1804. He bred hounds with distinctive markings, remarkable for their size and often almost white in colour. The pack was one of the first to be fed on biscuits. Under 'Squire' Jenkins, 'the beau ideal of a country gentleman', and John Harry his huntsman, here centre right in hunting hat, the pack gave legendary sport from Port Talbot to Cardiff. Nothing is known about the artist except that he painted two other pictures connected with the hunt which are signed and dated 1837.
