Stubbs was arguably the greatest painter of animals during the Enlightenment, highly regarded in his own lifetime and recognised as expert in depicting the anatomy of the beasts he painted. This rare mezzotint is after a famous work by the artist from the collection of the Duke of Marlborough at Blenheim Palace. At the time of this mezzotints production it was highly prized and critically lauded. Dixons plate was destroyed in a fire which made impressions even more desirable to 18th century and subsequent collectors and later inspired imitators. The present work though is part of that small and important early group by Dixon.
