The Lion and Horse, from Stubbs.
[Pub.d by J.Wheble, Warwick Square Aug..t 1. 1808.]
Engraving. Sheet 110 x 140mm (4¼ x 5½"). Trimmed within plate. Some damage.
A white horse, with its head turned to look behind with an expression of terror as a lion clings to its back, its teeth sunk into its shoulder. According to Lennox-Boyd, an accompanying text states that this print was copied from a 'fine enamel', which is now unknown; however a similar scene on enamel, with rocks rather than trees, is held in the Tate Gallery.
