          Artist details

          George Stubbs was an English painter, draughtsman and printmaker. His study of anatomy enabled him to paint animals with unsurpassed truth to nature, while his innate sense of design led to graceful, rhythmic compositions. His contemporary reputation was chiefly based on portraits of horses and dogs, but he also painted human portraits, conversation pieces and imaginative subjects with animals. He later experimented with enamel painting and perfected a beautiful mixed-method printmaking technique.
