Neddy (Sir John Tenniel Prize)

Painting, 1901
Brian Hatton, the artist, lived with his parents at Carlton Villa, until he was eight. It was in the early years at Carlton Villa when he learned to ride. His first mount was the donkey, Neddy. He was later promoted to a pony, Jenny. Learning to ride Neddy was the beginning of the artist's love of horses which lasted throughout his life. His love and understanding of them and the relationship between man and horse is clearly evident in his fluid images. This painting, in watercolour, was awarded the Sir John Tenniel Prize from the Royal Drawing Society.
