#WilliamTurnbull reworked the figure of the #horse throughout his career, reducing it to its basic form, as illustrated in Large Horse (1990). #Horses are a prevalent motif in #art and are often used in monuments of war heroes to signify power and victory in battle. Here, Turnbull offers a new interpretation on the theme of the horse in #sculpture – although large in scale, the work conveys a graceful innocence, suggesting movement more than power.
