68 paintings depicting various sections of (mostly) horse limbs and organs, showing disease and damage. The artworks are mostly watercolours, and those that are dated or signed range from 1820-1848.
Twenty-one of the paintings are signed by W Field (as well as the artist’s name) and it is assumed these were given to the RCVS by ex-President William Field, in a large presentation to Library and Museum in 1877. The reason these paintings were made, and why Field collected them, is unknown. Amongst Field’s collection, the paintings are signed by A A Cane, Joseph Perry and G Kirtland.
Twenty seven other artworks are by William Henry Kearney (1800-1858). The remaining 20 artworks are unsigned and undated, and do not seem to be related to the other two collections.
