Description  
Stubbs is best remembered for his paintings of horses and his conversation pieces. Having studied anatomy, Stubbs's pictures of horses are among the most accurate ever painted, but his work is lyrical and transcends naturalism. This painting is beautifully painted, the harmony between the white dog and bay horse is touching, Stubbs has deliberately put the animals centre stage, greeting each other against a sea view. As a painter, Stubbs documented the glorious period of rural English life before the Industrial Revolution drastically changed society and art.
