121 Discovered works of art
Elegant movements, graceful strength, a noble nature - so many positive qualities are attributed to them that horses are made to be immortalized in art. For millennia, they have accompanied humans as useful and riding animals through history. Already in the Stone Age, the close bond between horse and rider was artistically immortalized on rock walls. Almost every culture kept the horse in the painting. Whether as a fanciful Pegasus in Greek antiquity or a powerful warhorse of the knights of the Middle Ages, whether as a loyal friend of the noble 18th-century hunting or esthetic duet partner in modern dressage, there is hardly an epoch in which the horse does not find his way found on the canvas.

Painters such as George Stubbs, Franz Krüger or Alfred Roloff prescribed their art to the racy four-legged friends. And who does not know the "Blue Horse" by Franz Marc, an expressionist masterpiece that lives strongly on its color symbolism, or the curved, reduced horse drawings by Pablo Picasso?

The motives could not be more different. Dynamic lines contrasts with the realism of nature. The horse as a symbol of human emotions meets military symbolism. Abstraction finds its place alongside colorful simplicity. Often, humans and animals are shown together in familiar symbiosis, and then again the horse stands as a parable for nature, eroticism, power or elegance. Hardly any other animal can look back on such a captivating and diverse history in painting.
