The version of Horse and Knight from 1970 is undoubtedly the most narrative and it shows a different relationship between the man and the animal; while in the previous and further versions (ACO072; ACO073; ACO083) we can notice a mutual understanding in the tiredness of the movements, here the human being has a spur of command to which the animal painstakingly submits. The torsion of the snout is in fact, in this artwork, faster and it involves just the head of the horse while the neck is rigidly upright: in the next versions, on the other hand, the same progression is lower and more progressive, according with his owner’s tired orders.
