Józef Brandt was a Polish painter during the later 19th and early 20th century and was particularly well known for his battle scenes. This is the third in a series of his art & I have one more to come.
This is the last in a (very) long series of interesting and historical equestrian drawings. Although not originally designed for budding artists, I thought they would make for some fun on rainy afternoons.

These drawings are part of a large collection by Gray Parker from Horsemanship for Women, published in 1887 by Theodore Hoe Mead. Most of the book obviously focuses on women riders, however there were a few stray images that featured men too…ahem, although they are generally just there to ‘help the ladies out’. Be sure to also check out parts one, two, three, four, five & six.
The past few weeks I’ve been sharing some interesting horse line drawings – the kind that are just begging to be colored in. Not only is the art fantastic, but each image provides a look into the world of sidesaddle.
These drawings (and tons more) come from a book called Horsemanship for Women, written in 1887 by Theodore Hoe Mead & illustrated by Gray Parker. This book was written when horses were the dominant form of transportation and women often rode sidesaddle. I’m not sure how successful the book was in its day, but it has been great fun going through (& coloring some of) the artwork. If you’ve missed them be sure to check out parts one, two, three, four & five.
This weeks artsy horse post is a little different from the last few. While it still comes from the same book, these illustrations may be better used for information than coloring.
These drawings come from a book titled Horsemanship for Women, published in 1887 by Theodore Hoe Mead & illustrated by Gray Parker. Although they may not be a budding artist’s dream, they are still helpful illustrations for some disciplines. If you want something with a little more horse to color, check out parts one, two, three & four.
