Bay Hunter by a Lake in the style of George Stubbs


This painting is an interpretation of "Bay Hunter by a Lake" in the style of George Stubbs. Originally created around 1787. The bay horse's identity remains unknown, though this piece, believed to have been commissioned by Arthur Annesley, 9th Viscount Valentia. The horses ears are cropped, reflecting the fashion of the time.

The setting features a landscape of mallow and dock plants, flourishing in the shade of a tree clump on the right. Stubbs's distinctive landscape style of the following decade is evident, with a serene lake on the left and a quaint church and village visible across the shore.

Unlike Stubbs's earlier works, which often included horses with a groom, jockey, or owner. This painting exemplifies his later style where the animal is portrayed alone. This solitary depiction emphasizes the horse's grace and the tranquil beauty of its surroundings.

This artwork not only showcases Stubbs's mastery in capturing equine elegance. It also reflects the pastoral charm and serene landscapes that characterized his later period. It stands as a testament to the enduring appeal of Stubbs's work and his ability to infuse life and personality into his equine subjects.
