Horses in Art at the Bruce Museum, Connecticut

The horse has been a romantic subject for artists for twenty-thousand years. That is when the oldest known cave painting of horses were executed.

The Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Connecticut has mounted an exhibit of horses in art—“Saddle Up! Horsing Around at the Bruce Museum.” From Pierre Jules Mene bronzes to Eadweard Muybridge’s iconic equine locomotion photos, visitors will view the horse rendered by the world’s leading artists in every style and discipline, including foxhunting, racing, polo, farming, and war.
