Wilhelm von Kobell was a German painter during the late 18th and early 19th century. He recieved artistic training from a young age in Germany and tried a number of styles, however he came to base his particular style on Dutch art.
Painting The Rich
Kobell grew to be a prolific painter and was well-respected for his landscapes, portrait work, agrarian and battle scenes, all of which often featured horses. The horses in his art are handsome and bold, a clear sign that their owners are wealthy.
Although the equine form didn’t fascinate him like it did other artists, he has no problem doing it justice.
