Catalogue Note

"At the time I was interested in the cave paintings of Altamira. I looked at photographs of them. I think I was fascinated by the spirit they projected, even in photographs—these horses and bulls, I guess, charging across the cave wall. Those photographs had something to do with why I painted the horses."
