George Morland: Hack or Hero?

May 2018 by Dr Georgina Downey

It’s true that some people do end up looking like their dogs; but like their horses too? 

Above, we see a portrait of a favourite elderly white rescue horse and, above right, a sketch of the artist who owned and painted this horse. 

If we look carefully, we can see between the horse and the human the same heavily-lidded eyes that look like they’ve ‘seen it all’, the same three-quarter profile angle, the same fleshy, sensual lips and the same world-weary facial expression.
