After World War II, Munnings painted wonderful starts of horse races, mostly at Newmarket where a rubbing house had been converted to a studio. Munnings writes, "But to my own profession and purpose--seeing visible beauty; the grouping, the movement--colour, all dependent on the lighting; the sky. Orange satin, cerise-and-white-blue-and-yellow, emerald green--a large field waiting, waiting, regrouping. At each start determined to retain the picture in my mind."
