Ross: And Duncan's horses, - a thing most strange and certain, -
Beauteous and swift, the minions of their race,
Turn'd wild in nature, broke their stalls, flung out,
Contending 'gainst obedience, as they would make
War with mankind
Old Man.‘Tis said they eat each other
Ross. They did so, - to th’amazement of mine eyes,
That look’d upon’t
The Victoria & Albert Museum has three Shakespeare inspired marbles by Lough; Puck and Titania from A Midsumer Night's Dream and Jacques from As you like it.
Lough produced very few casts of his works. A large marble and a plaster of Duncan’s Horses are recorded in private collections, a further plaster is in the Los Angeles County Museum, and a bronze in the V&A. Lough benefitted from the patronage of many loyal Northumbrian clients, notably the Ridley family of Blagdon Hall. The 3rd Baron Ridley bought a cast of Duncan's Horses and his son commissioned several marbles.
