Horses have been the inspiration for hundreds of works of art over the centuries. This book celebrates the horse in all its glory, from its role as working animal in war and sport, to beloved pet. The horse’s beauty and majesty is caught by artists as diverse as Stubbs, Toulouse-Lautrec, Picasso, Magritte, Frink and Freud.

The Book of the Horse is a cool and quirky collection of equine art and illustration by artists from around the world. Interspersed through the illustrations are entertaining quotations and short texts on the artworks.
