George Stubbs 1724-1806.
London: Tate Gallery, 1985.
First softcover edition of the exhibition catalog, curated by Yale Center for British Art and the Tate.
Now celebrated as far more than a great painter of horses and dogs, Stubbs was an artist and scientist of the highest achievement.
He tirelessly explored the natural world and discovered new ways to represent it, as well as evolving a unique, somewhat comic portrait of his contemporaries and their world.
