One of the more striking works is the ‘Young Falconer’ which was exhibited as part of the Festival of Britain in 1951.  Painted in 1939, this idiosyncratic painting exudes the style of the late 1930s with Mary Hills the sitter holding a bird of prey.

This painting will be offered for sale on November 22 with an estimate of £1,000-£2,000 alongside other portraits and a substantial collection of etchings and drawings also by Exley. 

About Us

The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
