Riassunto: A lavish appreciation of horses and their relationship with humans, told through more than 100 giant reproductions of horses in art 


The fascinating history of humanity's bond with the horse is spectacularly brought to life in this beautifully illustrated volume. With superb images from the extraordinary Parthenon Frieze to the thoroughbred portraits of Stubbs; and from the enigmatic paintings of Edgar Degas to the contemporary creations of Damien Hirst, this book will delight horse and art lovers alike. Drawing on his extensive equestrian knowledge, Simon Barnes tells the story of horses and their unique relationship with humans. Rachel Barnes, as art historian, traces changes and development in Western art revealed through paintings and sculptures of the horse and explores the animal's role as the subject of myth and legend, as a symbol of royal power and authority, as the subject of anatomical scrutiny, and as the embodiment of strength and beauty.


Rachel Barnes is an art historian, an art critic, and the author of Gustav Klimt. Simon Barnes, Rachel's brother, is the multi-award-winning chief sportswriter of the Times. He is the author of How to be a Bad Birdwatcher and Planet Zoo. He has competed in eventing, showjumping, dressage, and endurance.
