Past/Present: A Man and his Horse

past present logo copy


Today we  have a new Past/Present post for our blog readers, with two prints of a man and his horse. These two pairs of travelers are alike in their solitude and the prints are alike in their fantastical use of color. Blazing reds and oranges  pop against the white snow in William Dickes’ The Horse Tamer, while Leo Frank’s color woodcut Man Leading Horse offers a rich palette of deep blues, purples, and greens.

Man Leading Horse is a new print for our gallery- it was acquired during this year’s Capital Art Fair, and is now visible on our website and in person at our Georgetown shop.
