George Stubbs. 1724 - 1806. Science into Art.
Herbert W. Rott.
Published by Prestel Publishing Ltd. 4 Bloomsbury Place, London, WC1A 2QA.
Book: D/W. Quarto. pp. 240. Illustrated colour wrappers. Profusely illustrated in both colour and monochrome throughout.
Although George Stubbs is best known for his images of hounds and horses charging round the British countryside, the painter was also an avid student of the broader animal world. This volume features gorgeous colour reproductions of paintings that highlight the painter's genius for combining realism and lyricism. It includes numerous drawings and prints - among them the exceptional studies for his 'The Anatomy of the Horse' series. Informative essays discuss Stubbs' superb aesthetic sensibility, his far-reaching scientific studies, and his place in the pantheon of eighteenth-century European painters.
