Eric Mason painting `Up the Mall`, Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment Horse Guards, large oil on canvas, signed,1970 English.

This vintage painting & frame are both in the original vintage condition.

This large painting, together with the British Royal Military equestrian theme and the vibrant tones, would make a striking addition to a range of interiors such as Art Deco, Traditional, Country or Contemporary.

In this painting the eye is attracted to the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment Horse Guards, positioned along The Mall in London England. It is signed by the artist in the top right corner with his abstract monogram: a combination of vertical & horizontal brush stroke lines.

The mood is bright and festive. This is reflected in the colourful uniforms, the blue sky and the green of the trees, all emphasized by the contrast with the dark tones of the horses.

The artist shows his imagination and skill. The surface of the oil painting has a `sandy` textured feeling to the touch creating an interesting perspective. The background is more abstract in style to the more traditional painting of the horse guards in the foreground, giving the illusion of motion of the riders on their procession.

This painting sits within the original vintage wooden frame. It is painted beige with a band in slightly textured beige fabric and a subtle very fine silver trim. On the reverse, along the horizontal top portion is written the title of the painting: `Up The Mall Eric Mason 1970` & `40/1970 Eric Mason`. It is also stamped at the bottom: `The Gordon Gallery, Fine Art Dealers, 57 High Street, Wimbledon Village, London SW19`.
The 2 original rings fitted at either side of the frame are present, along with new gold tone metal wiring to hang the picture to the wall.

This painting is in very good condition for its age. The painted surface has the original very light patina and has not been cleaned. The canvas is in very good condition with no cuts, loses or holes. The frame is sound and the joints are tight. The frame has minor tiny marks & rubbing in line with age.

Additional dimensions:

The total external dimensions of the frame are: Height: 69 cm, Width: 99.5 cm, Depth: 5 cm.

The internal surface of the painting is: Height: 59 cm, Width: 89.4 cm.

Eric Mason (1921 - 1986) was born in the United Kingdom. He lived and painted in the London area. As an artist, Eric specialized in the portrayal of the Household Cavalry by Defense Lifeguards along with The Blues and Royals, forming the Household Cavalry to the King of England. The Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment Horseguard and The King`s Lifeguards are always part of the daily procession riding by Buckingham Palace to honor the King of England. Besides cultivating a successful painting career as an artist, Eric was also an amateur magician, painting illustrations for a series of magic books & magazines.


The Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment is a cavalry regiment of the British Army tasked primarily with ceremonial duties. Part of the Household Division, it is classed as a regiment of guards, and carries out mounted ceremonial duties on State and Royal occasions.

In 1945 at the end of the Second World War, the 1st and 2nd Household Cavalry Regiments were reformed as the Life Guards and Royal Horse Guards respectively. Each regiment provided one mounted squadron each for ceremonial duties in London. These two squadrons were grouped as the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment. By 1991, this regiment was based at Hyde Park Barracks (built between 1967 and 1970) in Central London. The regiment continues to be based at the location.
