Marshall studied in London with the portrait painter Lemuel Francis Abbott, but soon branched out into sporting art also. After his move to the Newmarket area, he became best-known for the latter, and is known to have been influenced by the work of Stubbs. A large number of his works were engraved for The Sporting Magazine.
