Andre Pater art prints and posters

Painting from Kentucky, the centre of the American racing industry, Andre Pater's powerful renditions of hounds, jockeys and racing scenes have become coveted prizes for sporting art lovers and collectors around the world.


Andre Pater was born in Poland and graduated from the Cracow Academy of Fine Arts summa cum laude. He relocated to the United States in 1981, where a strong Polish tradition of involvement in the breeding of Arabian horses inspired Pater initially to work on the depiction of Arabians. His reputation soon established, he was able to move to Kentucky in 1988, where his interest shifted from Arabian horses to the powerful thoroughbreds which dominate the racing scene and he concentrated increasingly on paintings depicting racing, foxhunting, sporting dogs, cattle and wildlife.


For many years now, Andre Pater has been a familiar name in the circles of Sporting Art insiders. His oils, pastels, gouaches and charcoals can be found in many private and corporate collections. His work has been exhibited at prestigious galleries across the United States and both the artist and his work have been the subjects of magazines and publications around the world.


Andre Pater’s work was the focus of a major London exhibition in the summer of 2002, supported by some of the greatest names in the world of sporting art and opened by the American Ambassador in London, Mr William Farish, who is himself a noted collector of the artist’s work. Thirty-one paintings, priced at up to £75,000 each, were on display at the exhibition on the opening night; all thirty-one were sold in less than thirty minutes.

More about framing

Exploded-product

In the Design Studio

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.

Colour Perfecting in the Print Room

In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.

Measuring Up

After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.

Assembling Frames in the Framing Workshop

We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.

Hand-finishing in the Framing Workshop

Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.

The Last Stop

In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.

Mounting the Prints

The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.

Laying the Glass

Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.

The Final Product

After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.

Transferring to Canvas

For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.

Finishing the Canvas Edging

As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
