|The Anatomy of a Horse,|
by George Stubbs
(Probably not the original cover)
|A Lion Attacking a Horse, 1770,|
In 1762, Stubbs painted a dark, stormy, violent depiction of a white horse being attacked by a lion. Actually, fascination might be putting it mildly. It seems to have been more of an obsession. Or, perhaps he merely discovered a hot commodity. In any case, versions from 1770 also exist as well as a number of original prints either of a horse under attack, or being frightened by a lion.
