Stubbs, one of the most important British painters of all times, known for his horse portraitures and study of anatomy.  Virtually forgotten after his death (1724-1806) he was rediscovered in the 1880's as a sporting painter, in the 1930 with a proper understanding of his work his popularity increased dramatically. This book is the first book on Stubbs to provide a large and wide ranging group of plates placed in historic sequence so his career and the development of his style can be studied. Well researched book on Stubbs and his works.

Hard cover book with dust jacket both in very good condition, copyright 1971, first US edition, 138 plates, 16 in color, 220 pages
