And there is nothing surprising in the fact that it was here that the hippie subgenre of animal studies originated (the image of animals). He flourished in the 18th and 19th centuries. An important place among the artists-hippologists is Theodore Gericault (1791-1824) - a vivid representative of French romanticism. He was very fond of horses, he especially succeeded in depicting horses, only look at his painting, which depicted a wounded cuirassier resting on his battle horse.
And how he painted a horse, tormented by a lion! Theodore Gericault painted horses amazingly, but still went to England to improve in depicting his beloved animals. Remarkable is any of his paintings. The horses on them are written out to the smallest detail, with great love and knowledge of the topic. And the sadder is to realize the fact that he died in the prime of his life and talent, having fallen from his horse.
Among Russian artists, too, had their own classicsgenre. Who in the world does not know the famous horses of Peter Klodt on the Anichkov Bridge in the center of the Northern capital? These are four sculptural groups. But the picturesque canvases dedicated to these graceful animals, he worked out extraordinarily. For example, painted in 1860, the painting "Horses". The resting animals depicted on it look quite like living things.
Among the many Russian artists who paintedhorses, stand out Nikolai Sverchkov, Eugene Lansere and Franz Rubo. The latter is known for its panoramas dedicated to the Battle of Borodino, the defense of Sevastopol, the assault and seizure of the stakes of Imam Shamil - the village of Akhulgo. In all these epic works there are many horses.
