9783791351704: George Stubbs

This thorough appreciation of the eighteenth-century master of animal painting looks beyond the artist's sporting scenes to explore Stubbs' full range of work. Although George Stubbs is best known for his images of hounds and horses charging round the British countryside, the painter was also an avid student of the broader animal world. Among his subjects were zebras, cheetahs, and moose, which he drew from life in the exotic menageries where they were kept. This volume features gorgeous color reporductions of paintings that highlight the painter's genius for combining realism and lyricism. It includes numerous drawings and prints-among them the exceptional studeis for his "The Anatomy of the Horse" series. Informative essays discuss Stubbs' superb aesthetic sensibility, his far-reaching scientific studies, and his place in the pantheon of eighteenth-century European painters.
