Of all man s fellow-creatures, the horse, with its inherent grace, intelligence and courage, has inspired the strongest feelings of empathy an affinity reflected in more than 30,000 years of artistic representation. This unabridged compact edition of Tamsin Pickeral s stunning history of the horse in art documents the creative journey from prehistoric cave painting to the war horses of Uccello, the elegant portraits of Stubbs and the enigmatic prints of Elisabeth Frink. It explores the role of the horse in Eastern imagery and in myth and legend; as a symbol of power and an ally in war; as the subject of anatomical scrutiny; and as the emblem of sporting prowess. Profusely illustrated throughout, 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 glamorous thoroughbred.
