The painting shows a rearing horse with his face in profile and a grand, flaring mane. This lends movement to this classical pose.
The colourful detailing on the neck cast by the shadow of the mane guides the viewers’ eye down to the limbs.
The painting marries reds, pinks, & oranges with darker tones of green, muted blues and purples whilst the chest has been kept simple and luminous providing respite from the complexity of the work.
