Brings together more than 50 paintings and 40 prints and drawings including a rare loan of the National Gallery’s masterpiece 'Whistlejacket', as well as lesser known works, some of which have not been seen in the UK for many decades. Stubbs’ detailed anatomical studies will be displayed alongside the actual skeleton of Eclipse – the progenitor of over 90 percent of subsequent racehorses - as well as his paintings of Eclipse. The exhibition also features a selection of drawings from the artist’s last great endeavour, 'A Comparative Anatomical Exposition of the Structure of the Human Body' with that of 'A Tiger and A Common Fowl' produced many years before Darwin’s 'On the Origin of Species'. A version of the exhibition will tour to the Mauritshuis in The Hague where it will be the first George Stubbs exhibition in the Netherlands.
