Whistlejacket  1761-62

Ever the master of equine painting, George Stubbs was invited in 1762 to spend a period in the estate of the Marquess of Rockingham at the Wentworth Woodhouse in Yorkshire. There, he had the opportunity to apply his extensive knowledge of equine anatomy to a significant number of portraits of the Marquess’ huge horse studs, which were populated by some of Britain’s greatest exemplars of the equine species. In that period, he would produce many of his greatest works, using his time there to put to practice the knowledge he had gained over years of anatomy studies.

Perhaps the most famous of those painting, this 1762 oil on canvas, depicts the eponymous equine, a chestnut Arabian stallion with flaxen tail and mane, the color pattern believed to be the original coloring of the wild Arabian breed. A highly successful racer, Whistlejacket hailed from a prestigious line of stallions and was foaled in Belsay Castle, in Northumberland. The notoriously temperamental horse was retired from his racing career to stud at ten years of age with a record of only having been beaten four times, but is recorded to have been an average stud at best. This portrait of the animal was probably made when it was already retired to stud and as such past its glory days of racing. However, Stubbs was very dedicated to portraying the animal’s magnificent muscle structures and stature.

Placed over a drab beige background, the stallion is depicted rising to a pesade, which is a high-level school jump taught to horses as part of the classical dressage. It consists of the animal raising its forelegs evenly and tucked, putting all the weight on its hind legs, which perform a small jump, so that the animal seems to lift itself in the air while holding a 45-degree angle. Due to the animal’s position as portrayed, his pose has sometimes been described as rinsing into a levade, but that would have been impossible, considering that this school jump only started being taught in the early 20th century. The confusion might have arisen from the horse’s imperfect move into the pesade position, so artfully depicted in detail by Stubbs.

The painting is now in possession of the National Gallery, in London, after being purchased from the owners of Wentworth Woodhouse in 1997 for the sum of eleven million pounds sterling.

Finest Quality Stretching, Gallery Wrap or Framing
Purchasing without a frame (unstreched canvas)

When purchasing a painting on its own, it will arrive rolled inside a secure tube with an extra 1.5" of white canvas on all sides so you can easily frame it in any local frame shop.

Purchasing a frame (USA only)

You may choose to purchase your painting framed, in which case, it will arrive "ready to hang". We offer more than 20 beautiful models, all hand finished and expertly assembled by our experienced framers.

Note that for safety reasons we can only frame up to a certain size. Once the maximum size is reached the framing option is automatically disabled.

Purchasing a Stretching Service (USA only)

If you are planning to frame your painting yourself, use an existing frame, or frame it locally, you may choose to order your painting with a stretching service, meaning that it will arrive mounted on wooden bars.

Purchasing a Gallery Wrap (USA only)

If you're considering not framing your painting at all, you may opt for a Gallery Wrap. The term Gallery Wrap refers to the way the canvas is stretched, which is by wrapping it around thick stretcher bars, about 1.5 inch thick, with the canvas being secured to the back rather than the sides of those bars.
