Otto Eerelman was a painter, lithographer & engraver who was probably best known for his paintings of horses and dogs.
The Art of Horse Breeds
The images below come from an album of art entitled Horse Breeds which was published in 1898, (there were 40 in total).
Otto possessed a detailed knowledge of horseflesh and the ability to transfer that to canvas.
This paired with the author’s knowledge on the subject made this one of the leading horse books of its day. It became quite valuable and highly sought after.
Unfortunately I could only find a limited number of the breeds displayed in this book. The art is fantastic and he did a great job representing the essence of each one. If you liked these, check out some Thoroughbred horse art too.
