A portrait of the racehorse Marske by George Stubbs. Marske was sire of the hugely successful horse Eclipse, and was given to the Duke of Cumberland in exchange for a chestnut Arabian. Following the Duke's death he was bought by William Wildman and put to stud.

Mask is shown standing in a countryside scene by lake.
