A pinto horse in a classical etching. Although the horse's head is a bit too flat to be realistic, its pattern is pictured beautifully and was probably the whole barn's envy. Not very sure which pattern this is, but msot likely a tobiano (four white legs) with sabino giving it a blaze and amping up and 'breaking' the white blotches. A shame the tail is docked; this is unfortunate for the horse, and tobianos often have very flashy tails.

bofransson:  Nils Kreuger, “En Liten Grålle” (A Little Horse). Although of course a rather abstract artwork, the dark points of this horse give the impression of a bay roan. The beautiful play of light and texture really brings the lively creature to life.

Veronese - Venus and Mars with Cupid and a Horse. An interesting setting for this ancient story- Cupid leads a horse towards the pair of Classical lovers, and the animal eyes them curiously through long eyelashes. The two look as if they are getting caught in the act by the black horse, and surprise is written across their faces.

Alfred de Dreux (1810-1860)Sudanese groom riding a white horse, oil on canvas, 46 x 33 cm. The pinkish hue on the horse's skin suggest it is a true white, but it has one gray hoove, which indicates the existence of pigment that white horses normally don't have. Perhaps a gray with three white socks giving him shell colored hooves?

John Ferneley - The Council of Horses 1840. This painting offers a colorful perspective on the horse population in the 19th century. There are some flaxen chestnuts and bays around, a palomino as well as the iconic black sabino (probably a Shire or Clydesdale) pictured from the back. The small horse on the front is probably a buckskin, with a very light coat. This color is sometimes also called isabel. If you look carefully, you can see two pied horses in the background.

This utopic painting of a woman with her ponies and dog shows two stereotypes in animal breeding: the 'Lassie' dog, a collie with brown fur and white points, and the flaxen chestnut shetlander. More often than in other horse breeds do chestnut shetlanders carry flaxen. And one must say it looks quite well on them.

John Chester Mathews oil painting on board depicting a horse in stable. States "Commissioned by His Majesty the King" and dated 1899. This beloved horse is obviously taken well care of: look how its coat shines! Horses were often fed a ratio of grain for an eye-catching gleam. Grain was a very costly feed at that time, reserved for the wealthy. This horse is a bay, showing the darker side of the bay spectrum, with those lively copper highlights often seen in bays.

The King 2011.  Original oil on canvas painting by Suzana Stojanovic    Series The Magical World of Horses. This extreme feat of realism gives us the view of a horse's features through an artist's eye. Look closely, and see the small gray specks on the shiny white of the horses' coats; these horses were gray once, and small hints of this are still visible as they ripen with age.

King Of The Cowboys on his Tennessee Walking Horse Trigger. Trigger Jr, aka Allen's Golden Zephyr. A rather modern icon of the Western Cowboy fantasy, this palomino has won the hearts of many. Take a look not only at his goldish color, but also at the crispness of the four white socks- perhaps idealized on this propagandous pamphlet.

Details from a medieval painting of horses. Although of course it cannot be confirmed how realistically this painting depicts this specimen, the horse with the blue eyes is quite striking. It has a clear blaze, so it could be the Splash marking giving it those attention-catching eyes; or is it perhaps a very early example of Champagne (look at its coat color), or some other dilution? We will most probably never know...
