As an artist who paints horses, I always love to learn from the masters. George Stubbs (1724 - 1806)
is considered to be one of the greatest of all British
horse painters.
So on a recent trip overseas when everyone
else at the museum was surrounding the
Mona Lisaand the Winged Victory, I scurried off to a quiet gallery
and was excited to discover a George Stubbs painting!

I must have stayed there longer than the museum guards
thought proper, but for me it was a once in a lifetime experience.
If you have seen a Stubbs horse painting in a museum here in the states,
I'd love to hear from you.
