In his time Wouterus Verschuur was an acclaimed painter of horses. From his teacher, the livestock artist P.G. van Os, he learned to capture their physique and movement to perfection. As a true-born romanticist he was also interested in their character, thereby painting powerful carthorses in their stable, thoroughbred saddled horses during an afternoon ride or harnessed horses in action. Verschuur was also a great painter of dogs and these appear in most of his paintings. The painter lived in Haarlem between 1858 and 1868, where he taught Anton Mauve. He also instructed his son Wouterus Jr, who like his father specialized in painting horses.
