This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Tantalisingly little is known about Spode due primarily to the fact that he never exhibited any works during his own life-time, restricting himself to private commissions. Indeed, it is unknown whether he was born in England or Ireland, although he certainly painted in both countries, executing a number of portraits of race horses and their riders on the Curragh as well as members of the Anglo-Irish ascendancy with their favourite hunters.

He was a racehorse owner and trainer himself and seems often to have named his animals after members of his family; there are known examples of his wherein the horse is called either Mr Spode or Mrs Spode! Two of his works were reproduced in The Sporting Magazine and they appear quite regularly at auction houses in London. His depiction of horses and dogs are widely regarded as being among the best of his era.
