Parastone - Stubbs, George IV Silhouette Dart ceramic vase
Stubbs - George IV Silhouette D'art Vase
George Stubbs was classified in his lifetime as a sporting painter, and as such was excluded from full membership of the Royal Academy. He is best remembered for his paintings of horses and his conversation pieces. Having studied anatomy, Stubbs's pictures of horses are among the most accurate ever painted, but his work is lyrical and transcends naturalism.
