The painting is of a rearing horse with his face showing in profile and grand mane flaring out to lend movement to this classical pose.
The colourful details on the neck cast by the shadow of the mane leads the viewers eye down into the limbs.
The painting marries reds, pinks, & oranges with dark earthly tones of green, pastel blue and purple whilst the chest been kept simple and luminous providing respite from the complexity of the work.
