In one of my many searches for horse art online I ran across these sketches by Pisanello who was a distinguished Italian artist during the early Renaissance.
These horse sketches are reminiscent of Leonardo da Vinci’s work & his attention to detail is masterful. Interestingly enough, his work has been mistakenly attributed Leonardo as well as Dürer & Piero della Francesca. All of these drawings come from the Vallardi Codex which is the major collection from the Pisanello workshop and come from the 15th century.
The unfinished nature almost gives us a look through the eyes of the artist as he studied the anatomy of animals in front of him.
Easy Does It…
I’ve got a lot to share & I think each and every one of these drawings deserve a close look so I’m sharing them a few at a time. I hope that increases the impact of each one and makes everyone want more! If you like these you may love some fantastic drawings of elephants too.
