The theme I have chosen to create my exhibition on is horses. The reason I have chosen this theme is because I feel that I have a very strong connection and love of horses so I chose to do this theme. I also chose this theme because I thought I would really enjoy trying the find artworks that relate to the theme of horses. Choosing this theme and finding images to this theme means a lot to me because I have grown-up being around horses. But then again the theme of the exhibition of horses shows a varied range of different pictures of horse for example there are paintings of horse at war and also very simple painting of horses in stables and lots more great painting of the theme horses thought out the exhibition. This exhibition also gives a wide look of what horse are and why or what they were used for. The two paintings I have chosen to use to show how they relate to my theme are Portrait group (1908) by George W. And Mares and foals, facing left (between 1790 and 1800) by Sawrey Gilpin. The first painting Portrait group is a charming painting of a family sitting around the little brown horse with the little boy on top of the family horse. This painting fits in great with the theme because its shows that horse are not only used for war or work they can be used to bring happiness to families. The second painting mares and foals, facing left in a pretty painting of two mares and their foals doing what horse do best in the wild. In the painting its shows one of the foals feeding from its mother this can show the connection between the two of them like mother like draughter. This painting fits well with the theme because it is showing the differences to a horse with a family to horse being in the wild.
