Synopsis

Synopsis

For horse lovers, art lovers, and collectors of unusual, beautifully illustrated books, here is the only volume on the market to offer such a large and gorgeous array of equine art.

The book is divided into eight themed chapters that explore the diverse representations of horses in art: horses depicted as our trusty companions, unstinting workers, and supporters in combat. The book charts this enduring partnership, drawing on the profusion of paintings and sculptures that feature the dignified and intelligent animal that has played so many roles in human history and culture. From the small Nisean horse of the Persian Empire to the tough and speedy mounts of the Wild West, from the winged steed Pegasus to the faithful Black Beauty, humble nags take their place alongside preening thoroughbreds as the many breeds and guises of the horse are depicted.
