In his time, Wouterus Verschuur was already a famous horse painter. He learned to capture the anatomy of these animals in perfect detail from his teacher, the cattle painter P.G. from Os. Verschuur was a typical Romantic painter: he emphasized the splendor and strength of these noble animals. Verschuur's paintings show a great sense of composition and the effect of light. The 19th-century painter was also an accomplished painter of dogs, who often appear in supporting roles in his paintings. Sometimes these four-legged friends form the main motif. Verschuur liked to place them in interiors with a lavish and elegant decor.
