Product Overview

This stunningly illustrated history of the horse in art, written buy a specialist in both art and horsemanship, documents the creative journey from prehistoric cave painting to the formidable war horses of Paolo Uccello, ...

...the Thoroughbred portraits of George Stubbs, the sensitive, enigmatic prints of Elizabeth Frink and beyond.

It explores the role of the horse in Eastern imagery and as the subject of myth and legend; as a symbol of power and an ally in war; as the subject of anatomical scrutiny and the Romantic embodiment of human feeling; and as the emblem of sporting pleasures and prowess. The book sheds particular light on man’s relationship with the horse, and on the story of equine evolution from the stocky primitive to today’s thoroughbred.
