The two most influential horses items in the world? One, whose DNA is present in around 95% of all thoroughbred race horse in the world – the other probably the best painting of a horse. Not bad for an exhibition in Milton Keynes. Yes I went to the Stubbs exhibition at Milton Keynes for a second time and I wasn’t disappointed. It is fascinating to see how much information and detail can be missed. Possibly the most interesting is that the famous Whistlejacket painting doesn’t really look like the study he painted along with his groom (I can’t show you a photograph as none were allowed of that painting but I’m sure you can find a copy on the internet should you be interested.) . This doesn’t distract from the masterpiece but rather adds to it in my view.
In the dim and distant past 36 images was a roll of film, which wasn’t cheap, so was considered to be a reasonable amount of images. Today? For some cameras that is less than 2 seconds worth of images. Such is life.
