Horse: From Noble Steeds to Beasts of Burden
Lorraine HarrisonISBN: 978-3-8228-5997-1;
Be it a racing horse or a cart horse, a charger or a pony - man's history would have taken an altogether different course without the horse. In war and on the hunt, at work and at play: the horse has always been man's faithful companion. Artists and writers too, have paid repeated tribute to the power, beauty and grace of this the most noble of all creatures. More than 300 works of art and countless quotations from world literature make up a striking portrait of a partnership that has survived down through time. From pre-historic cave paintings in France to the precise drawings by Leonardo de Vinci to the colourful oil paintings by Franz Marc. Издание на английском языке. Формат: 19 см х 13,5 см.
