In 1815 David Dalby was listed in the York directory as an animal painter living outside Micklegate Bar. He moved to Leeds for a brief period following offence caused to the local sherrif by a caricature he produced. He painted mostly horses and racehorse settings, equestrian portraits and hunting scenes. He was considered to be in his prime during the 1820s, although his work continued to  fetch large sums through to the end of the 19th century. In 1820 he painted 'The Berkeley Hounds in Kennel,' in 1821 'The London and Edinburgh Mail Coach' and in 1824 he produced a set of three paintings depicting 'Lord Harewood's Hunt.'
