A portrait of the trotter champion, "St. Julien", oil on canvas. Titled and initialed for the artist, "M.J.C." at the lower right. The gilt gesso frame is original to the work. From The Harness Museum.com, "Foaled in 1869, this son of Volunteer-Flora spent the early part of his life pulling a milk wagon in Orange County, New Tork. St. Julien was sold for $600 to James Galway of New York City, who named the gelding St. Julien after seeing the name on a bottle of wine. St. Julien made his first start at age seven in 1876, winning all six races and taking a record of 2:22 1/2. Three years later, in the hands of Orrin Hickok, St. Julien became the world's champion, trotting the mile at Oakland, California in 2:12 3/4 and lowering his record a year later, at Hartford, Connecticut, to 2:11 1/4. He died in 1894 at age 25".20" x 30", the frame 30" x 40".


Minor scattered touch-up, some minor losses and cracks to the gesso of the frame.
