A scene depicting Lord Fulwar Craven, on horse back, in profile to the right, dressed in hunting costume with a view of Ashdown House in the background. The house was built by William Earl Craven (for the Queen he loved Queen Elizabeth of Bohemia who died before it was finished). It was gifted by the family to the National Trust in 1956 and is now tenanted by Mr. Pete Townsend who has completed a substantial renovation. Another attendant to the hunt is also on a horse, behind to the left. A huntsman with a dead hare is standing before him, with two greyhounds and a smaller horse. Fulwar Craven, 4th Baron Craven, was an English nobleman and sportsman who was educated at Rugby School and Magdalen College, Oxford. He was famously fond of racing and hunting, hunting on his Berkshire estates at Hamstead Marshall and Ashdown Park, keeping his own stud of racehorses and founding a racecourse at Lambourn. He and his brother William founded the Craven Hunt.

Set of four mezzotints. 350 x 250mm. A fine matching set in modern frames.
Depicting the parable of the Prodigal Son in late 18th century England, where the Protestant interpretation of the parable required the son to repent, and be worthy of his father's forgiveness. He would consequently be forgiven by God. 1. The hall of a country-house. A waiting coach with two servants is seen through the open door (right). A young man in riding-dress takes leave of his mother. A weeping young woman (left) and the father (right) complete the group. A carpet and pilastered walls give an impression of luxury. Numbered 618. 2. The young man sits on a sofa, his arm round a courtesan. Another (right) leans on her elbows on the back of a chair, tilting it against a square card-table, on which are cards, dice, decanters of 'Burgundy' and 'Hock', &c. A cocked hat, a mask, two tickets for a 'Masquerade', and a 'Cock fighting' advertisement lie on the floor. On the sofa is a domino. On the wall are two sporting prints: a prize fight, and horses passing the winning-post. Between them is an oval miniature of a man (bust portrait). The room is luxuriously furnished. Numbered 619. 3. The young man, ragged and melancholy, sits outside a pigsty holding some of the pea-pods from a heap, at which two pigs are guzzling. Behind is a large tree, and (right) a distant village church. Numbered 620. 4. The young man, dressed as in plate 3, advances towards his father who stands on the serpentine drive leading to his house, one corner of which can be seen on the left, with a figure of Fame poised on the corner of the roof. Behind the Prodigal, a servant in livery holds out shoes and stockings. Three women wait expectantly in a gateway. Numbered 621 Robert Dighton (1752 - 1814) was a draughtsman, well known for designs of satirical prints. Carington Bowles (1724 - 1793) was the son of John Bowles (q.v.), to whom he was apprenticed in 1741, and with whom he was in partnership as John Bowles & Son, at the Black Horse, Cornhill, London, from 1752 or 1753. He later took over the business of his uncle, Thomas Bowles II (q.v.) in St Paul's Churchyard. It has been assumed that Carington moved to St Paul's Churchyard in 1766.

Following the Duke's death he was bought by William Wildman and put to stud.
