Stubbs and the Horse

Stubbs and the Horse was the first major exhibition in 20 years on George Stubbs (1724-1806), the great British painter of animals and outdoor life, and the first exhibition to focus on the central theme of his art, the horse. A selection of paintings and drawings showed the remarkable range and variety of Stubbs images of the horse, from anatomical studies to equine portraits and scenes of mortal combat in the wild. The magnificent centerpiece of this exhibition was Whistlejacket, his best known and most widely admired work.  The exhibition was organized by the Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth, Texas, in association with the Walters Art Museum, Baltimore, and the National Gallery, London. The exhibition was supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities. The lead sponsors for the Baltimore venue were Brown Advisory, Fancy Hill Foundation, and Howard and Martha Head Fund, Inc. Contributing sponsors included Audi of Hunt Valley, Maryland Horse Breeders Association & Dark Hollow Farm, Maryland Saddlery/ Hope Birsh & Stephen Plakotoris, Miss Dorothy McIlvain Scott, and Mr. and Mrs. M. David Testa. Additional support was provided by Alex. Brown & Sons Charitable Foundation, Inc., Frank and Helen Bonsal, Richard and Rosalee Davison, Hannah and Thorne Gould, Legg Mason Trust, F.S.B., Sothebys, and The Stiles Ewing Tuttle Charitable Trust; Mr. Stiles T. Colwill and Mr. Jonathan Gargiulo.
