Portraits of Horses and Riders

Paintings and portraits of horses go back through the centuries. Symbolic meanings of the Horse date back to prehistory, and the first civilized, written acknowledgement of the Horse comes in the third millennium BC where historians uncovered slate tablets in Elam (present day Iraq and Iran) which reference this noble, wild beast. Due to its natural companionship with man in both work and art, the Horse easily wins a special seat in history, ranking high marks of honor, reverence and symbolism.Inspiration for my portraits of horses has to of course come from the mighty George Stubbs and his most famous Whistlejacket which can be seen hanging at the National Gallery. Well worth a visit.
