Title: George Stubbs
Post by YaBB Administrator on 30. Jun 2006 at 08:00

George Stubbs (born in Liverpool on August 25, 1724 died in London July 10, 1806) was a British painter, best known for his paintings of horses.

In the late 1750s George Stubbs rented a farmhouse in Horkstow and spent 18 months dissecting horses. He moved to London in about 1759 and in 1766 published The anatomy of the Horse. The original drawings are now in the collection of the Royal Academy.
