George Stubbs: 'all done from Nature' presents the first significant of Stubbs' work in Britain for more than 30 years and brings together 100 paintings, drawings and publications from the National Gallery's Whistlejacket to works that have never been seen in public.
Today, Stubbs is recognised as one of the most original artists of the eighteenth century. His wide-ranging subjects included portraits, conversation pieces and pictures of exotic and domestic animals - horses included - and his obsession with scientific exactitude has drawn comparison with the work of Leonardo da Vinci.
