I’ve enjoyed the idea of looking back at some of the masters of the art world to see which ones were horse fans.
It’s no secret that the horse is a difficult animal to draw – perspective is everything. I like to think that some of the true talents drew them to hone their skills.
Eugene Delacroix was one of the important French Romantic painters. He was also a lithographer and illustrated for the likes of William Shakespeare and Sir Walter Scott.
He was inspired by Reubens and painters of the Venetian Renaissance who believed in an emphasis on color and movement in their art.
