Explore the representation of Arabian and Thoroughbred horses, in England and France, in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Jennifer Alexander, Assistant Curator of Fine Art at York Art Gallery, discusses the role of pioneering artist George Stubbs, his amazing Anatomy of the Horse, and his creation of dazzling images of the famous Thoroughbred horses Whistlejacket, Gimcrack and others. Stephen Weber, Royal Collection, discusses the brilliant works by Stubbs in the Royal Collection.

Consideration of the development of painting and sculpting Arabian horses in Romantic British and French art includes the chance to view a selection of equestrian prints relating to Stubbs, Delacroix and others, on display for this session only, guided by Hilary Williams, British Museum.
