OIL PAINTING: A Grey Stallion In a Landscape, c.1765
"A Grey Stallion In a Landscape
" is another brilliant wildlife painting by George Stubbs which has been reproduced with great effort .
This painting, showing a grey stallion in a dark wooded landscape, is not as usually simple for Stubbs, as it is enlivened by a luminous landscape . The little contrast between the light horse and the vivid background is as contrast to his Horse and Lion paintings, when he included a white horse under attack in a cavernous landscape.
