An excellent book which I would recommend for anyone interested in horses and their anatomy. Stubbs images highlight the beauty of the horse.

This book is full of illustrations, fine but the photo of Whistlejacket [which I saw at National Gallery recently] is either desperately poor or taken before restoration.
The book has not been abused but is coming apart, so NOT a good book, pity because the idea is brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! 24 Jan. 2007
By Happy Artist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is outstanding. The plates are all in color and large enough to see easily. Stubbs anatomical drawings are very detailed. I had been having trouble understanding how horses moved before I saw those drawings. Seeing the skeleton and muscles helped considerably. When I took it to class and showed my professor, she got online and bought one for herself. She draws/paints horses beautifully and owns horses herself.

Reading the background information about George Stubbs and the symbolism used in his paintings was very interesting and educational.
5.0 out of 5 stars Stubbs...more than a painter. 12 Sept. 2014

A beautiful, fascinating book with the details of how Stubbs because the foremost painter of horses. I actually just purchased an extra copy after giving my original one to my plastic surgeon. Everyone is interested in how Stubbs learned anatomy to the point of becoming a master of skin, tissue and bone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stubbs & the Horse 10 Nov. 2006
By Rachael Chapple - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Excellent purchase. I saw this book in the National Gallery, London having just viewed Whistle Jacket. I wanted it because my own passion lies in painting Horses. The book is full of fascinating information on Stubbs himself, his love of horses and has his excellent illustrations / studies of equine anatomy. A useful and beautiful book filled with his striking paintings.
