Painting - Acrylics On Canvas
This is a cavalry horse I've painted for my friends of 45 years. This horse served as an officer's mount during WWI in Austrian army and safely returned his owner home. The rest of his life he lived as a retired, loved and respected pet of the family. When he died he was buried in the park near the castle in Lesko. Poland. His name was Kuba.
Here is the story about the painting's origin: Cavalry Horse (inspiration - the private photography of a sketch of a horse by W. Kossak and the family story by my friend Z. G.)
In the spring of 2005 I visited my friends of 45 years in Poland. One, nice May evening, after supper, we have been looking at the old family photographs and on one of them I found, among others, a sketch of a beautiful horse. I asked who did that sketch and the answer was, that the artist was Wojciech Kossak (1856 - 1942, celebrated Polish artist painter) and the sketch and painting, he did for the family, disappeared at the end of WWII in 1945 in Lesko. At that moment I promised myself that I would paint that horse for them. So, after some years I've painted that horse in front of the Lesko castle's wall decorated with hunting trophies, as it used to be long time ago and one can see on the old photographs.
Then, you could imagine my joy when the painting was ready and I could send it over to my dear friends.:)
I have painted 3 versions of this painting - this one is the original one and it is a part of a private collection.
