George Stubbs loved the dramatic theme of a lion attacking a horse. This painting comes from a series of four painting in a terrifying attack on a horse. This is the first stage, as the horse scents the lion emerging from its cave and rises up in fright. The background is wild and romantic. How does this painting make you feel?
