The artwork of Charles Rees continues to explore and celebrate the beauty and majesty of horses in his series of “Horses and Antiquity”. The horse, mythological or real, in war and peace, has played a key role in the development of man’s civilization.
The new artwork uses bold color and line to capture the beauty, strength and grace of the horse, emphasizing its heroic nature.
The painting, Tres Blue, was a selected work for the Ex Arte Equiness art competition held by Art Horse Magazine. The Tres Blue painting is featured in the book, The Ex Art Equiness, published by Art Horse Magazine.
Horses have been a consistent theme in art starting some 30,000 years ago, a reoccurring image from prehistoric times to the modern age. Artists, from cave artists to Franz Marc and Picasso, have made the horse an important feature of their artwork.
