Boy who bit off too much

Boy on a Dressage Horse


Circa 1830


14 1/2″ H x 16 3/4″ W

This charming watercolor depicts a young boy on the back of a spirited horse. His expression shows that his mount is completely in charge. The painting is signed on the reverse by a name we cannot read but indicate the picture is probably dutch. 


WHY WE LOVE IT: Both the horse and the boy depict great attitude and this is the perfect small painting for any hunt country house.
