Recently I’ve been featuring horses in art by color and I’ve already shared some of the basic colors, white, red and black (pt.1). Black seems to be a popular color for artists who paint horses so here is part two of their collection.
While I love all horses equally, like many I have a think for a pure black animal. There is something stately and noble in an animal with a shiny blue-black coat. These artists seem to agree (as did many of their subjects). Which one is your favorite?
Prince Alexander Nikolayevich – Franz Krüger
Furusiyya – January Suchodoiski
Black Horse in the Sun – Giovanni Fattori
The Phaeton of the Prince of Wales – George Stubbs
General Pershing – Jan Chelminski
Horse and Foal in the Stables – Benno Adam
War – Henri Rosseau
George IV – John Singleton Copley
Hercules – Wiktor Michajlowitsch Wassnezow
Stay tuned for some of the more unique colors in horse art, I found a lot of colorful animals! For now be sure to take a look at some white, red and more black horses as well.
