The Grey Horse, Philips Wouwerman, c. 1646

The Grey Horse, Philips Wouwerman, c. 1646

oil on panel, h 43.5cm × w 38cm. More details

A grey horse, whose reins are held by a boy, plays the leading role in this small panel. The horse stands out clearly against the dramatic cloudy sky. Wouwerman’s rendering of the animal with its almost palpable coat is very lifelike. By choosing a low vantage point, the artist strengthened the painting’s monumental effect.
