Grazing horses – an oil on board by Peter Howell
Description: This evocative oil painting shows the breadth of Peter Howell's talents - his choice of palette is so light & delicate that you can feel the heat & haze of the balmy midsummer day on which the two beautifully observed horses are grazing. It is hard not to be affected by the serenity of the scene Peter has conveyed. Measurements of the image - 34 cm x 45 cm / frame - 50 cm x 60 cm / signed 'Howell' bottom lefft The equestrian artist Peter Howell was born in Caernarvon, North Wales in 1932 – from an early age, he spent his holidays working as a stable lad at the stables of the Hon. George Lambton at Newmarket. Initially, he pursued a career in racing before changing tack to focus more fully on his painting. His first exhibition in Newmarket in 1969 led to a series of one-man shows at Ackermanns and helped to establish his international reputation. He has subsequently exhibited in London, New York, and Saratoga. His work is highly regarded and much sought after.
