Well Worth the Money for Artists and Admirers Alike

This is a very lovely book, and would be considered an asset even without the accompanying naratives. The pieces vary from finished master paintings, to sketches and impressions. It gives insight on each individual piece- namely a short history of the artist in question and their intentions with the work, how the piece related to the time, and at times how the piece summed up against rival pieces. It draws on art from a variety of time periods and location, including but not limited to: Horses in Ancient Civilizations, The Early Oriental Horse, The Medieval Horse and the Age of Chivalry, The Renaissance Masters, The Age of the Baroque, The Late Oriental Horse, the Eighteenth Century, the Nineteenth Century, and The Twentieth Century and the Modern World. Over all, this is a book that will find a happy place in any home, be it of a horse enthusiast or an artist looking for inspiration.
