Mares and Foals in a Landscape

  Buy now from allposters.com1760s: Tate Gallery at London

The series of mares and foals was a beautiful product of Stubb's art during the 1760s. The paintings were produced for aristocratic sporting patrons who no doubt wished for portraits of horses belonging to them, though it has been remarked that the same horses recur in several of the pictures and it would seem that Stubbs was mainly interested in the variations he could make upon a theme. In this example, there is no element suggestive of sport nor has the artist chosen to introduce the human element; the result is a poetic vision of nature.
