Artwork description

Anthony Eyton RA, whose practice has always included the painting of still-lifes, has been influenced throughout his life by his extensive travels in India. This small decorative horse was found on a trip to Rajasthan and is described by the artist as a ‘ceremonial war horse’ with a regal quality. He was particularly fascinated by ‘a peculiarity’ of the horse’s ears, which turn inwards. This small-scale work features the dynamic mark-making and expressive handling of paint for which Eyton is renowned. It is presented among a number of Eyton’s dynamic new paintings that explore in detail the collapse of some shelving in his studio.
