Stubbs & The Horse
by Malcolm Warner and Robin Blake
George Stubbs is considered by many to be the greatest horse painter in the history of art. This book includes his classic paintings, Thoroughbreds, hunters, Arabians prints, as well as his more humbler subjects, detailed anatomical studies, his experiments in encaustics and enamels. Generously illustrated in color and black and white and an abundance of text that covers the history of the times, the horses, people, treatment as well as details of Stubbs, his art and methods, influences, theories and the stories behind his works and so much more.
Extensive footnotes, bibliography and indexed.
