Edward Lloyd (1818-1901) competent English artist was trained as an artist by Mr Agnew of Manchester and subsequently excelled as an equine artist. The Marquis of Hastings, nicknamed “Champagne Charlie” , once wagered that he could produce a finer equine artist then Landseer.

Edward Lloyd was a sporting English artist from Ellesmere in Shropshire. Who specialised and is recognised for his ability to paint in animal portraiture for many years, particularly horses, as well as sheep and cattle. Edward Lloyd had an exhibit at the Royal Academy in 1861 which was of Shropshire Down sheep, whilst he lived at Willow Street Ellesmere. Edward Lloyd painted a fine picture of hunters at Wynnstay and also recorded amongst other horse portraits is that of a Welsh stallion. All his work has been seen has been of very good quality.
