George Stubbs, 'Whistlejacket' (1762). Whistlejacket’s career hit an all-time-high in August 1759 – he famously won a race in York, winning the 2nd Marquess of Rockingham 2000 guineas. Stubbs’ masterful study of equestrian physiology is owed to the 18 months he spent carving up dead horses from 1756. Beads of sweat roll down his silky fur, veins and arteries pulsate from beneath the skin and we can almost feel the Arabian thoroughbred breathe in this meticulous portrait. 23 Jun 2012
