Horses of the Artistic Masters

Horses of the Artistic MastersOver the years I have been writing this website I have formed a much greater appreciation for art. Although I must confess a special love for equine art, I enjoy other subjects as well.

To combine two of my favorite things has been a lot of fun as I’ve searched the web for horses in art as painted by the masters. I started with some of the most recognized artists on the planet and as I added them I kept running across more.

Not all of them are recognized masters, but they were or are all masterful artists & their horses are worth a look.

    When did you change your tagline? 100% Horse Crap is hilarious!
    There is no way on earth I could ever choose a favorite artist, though you have certainly made an exhaustive list of them to choose from.
    Whoever made the White Horse of Uffington (though not technically an artist(??) would get my vote.

    This is a wonderful project you’ve produced for all of us who love horses and art. Don’t forget the Itailian painters of the 1400s – like Uccello and Piero della Francesca and Bennozo Gozzoli and Pisanello. Also, Jan Van Eyck painted a beautiful group of mounted knights in his Ghent Altarpeice.

    Keep up the good work!

    A good website for anyone interested in depictions of horses in art. I am particulaly interested in those which depict heavy-horses that are decorated and display the early use of english harness decorations. The best of these is J.F Herring (Snr) The Quarry (1858) and his slightly earlier, The Harvest (1857) which both depict early horse brasses in use.
