George Stubbs is widely regarded as the greatest of all painters of animals, especially the horse.

Stubbs’ masterpiece, Whistlejacket, goes beyond the limits of conventional animal painting and is one of the most heroic and daring images in the history of British art. Although he catered to a clientele who were interested in horse-racing and hunting, Stubbs was a sophisticated man of his time who had visited Rome where he saw classical sculpture and was also friendly with scientists and the early industrialists, whose inventions he incorporated into his distinctly English form of Neo-classicism.
