Reputed to have been among the greatest equestrian painters of his time, George Stubbs was well-known for his brilliance in the portrayal of animal anatomy, as well as his unique talent for rendering the animals in a way that made them justice. Due to that deserved fame, Stubbs was often commissioned to paint the best horses of Britain’s most wealthy and powerful, to the extent that having one’s horse painted by Stubbs was a testament to one’s station in society, which in itself was as invaluable as the paintings themselves or their models, for that matter.
Among the people who would commission Stubbs’ artwork, there were nobles, wealthy landowners, and successful military men. Yet, few of them would prove to have a story more interesting than one Colonel O’Kelly, owner of Dungannon. Born in Connacht to a family of impoverished smallholders, young Dennis wanted more to his life than the rocky hills of Western Ireland. With that in mind, the Irishman set out to London, becoming a sedan chair carrier. Although the source of the beginning of his fortune is disputed, it is said to have been either through marrying and conning an heiress out of about a thousand pounds sterling or through gambling. That first windfall was quickly spent, for not much later, O’Kelly would become a guest of the Fleet debtor’s prison, where he would meet a prostitute by the name of Charlotte Hayes, who would grow his business, if not romantic, partner for years to come.
Together, the duo would amass a considerable fortune through gambling and prostitution, becoming so rich that they were able to enter the world of racehorse breeding, starting with the wildly famous champion horse named Eclipse, which was also the first painting commissioned from Stubbs by the now Colonel O’Kelly of the Middlesex Militia. Possibly in hopes of ingratiating himself with London’s elite, O’Kelly would later commission a second painting, this time of the beautiful bay horse seen in this oil on canvas, now in possession of private collectors. Sadly for him, while commissioning a Stubbs painting did help one rise in the English society, his lack of breeding and illiteracy would keep him from becoming a member of the Jockey Club. Upon his death, his testament read that all his horses should be sold and that, should his heirs become involved in horseracing, they would have to forfeit their inheritance.
