The Female Fox Hunter, produced in London ca. 1770. She’s wearing a riding habit with her heels, an outfit composed of a shirt, necktie or cravat, waistcoat, jacket, and petticoat; the riding habit was based on the cut of men’s clothes and worn as casual dress for active pursuits.
With characteristic business acumen, rubens created a market for a new art form: very large hunting scenes painted on canvas, of which this one is the first. Description from weddingdecorateideas.com. I searched for this on bing.com/images
Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride, friendship without envy or beauty without vanity? Here, where grace is laced with muscle, and strength by gentleness confined. He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity. There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent; there is nothing so quick, nothing more patient......All our history is his industry. We are his heirs, he our inheritance. Ladies and Gentlemen--the Horse!" - Ronald Duncan
