George Stubbs, an engraving from The Anatomy of the Horse
George Stubbs' "Zebra" — one of the Yale Center for British Art's most iconic works — has crossed the street to hang in the Yale University Art Gallery, along with hundreds of other Romantic-era treasures. While this may be their largest joint exhibition, it is just one example in a long history of collaboration.
Yale University Art Gallery
If you've been to the Gallery lately, you've surely noticed the large lion and horse in our lobby! It's a painting by George Stubbs on loan from the Yale Center for British Art (YCBA) and a harbinger of grand things to come. The first major collaborative exhibition between the YCBA and the Gallery opens March 6th. "The Critique of Reason: Romantic Art, 1760-1860" will occupy the entire fourth floor of the Gallery and include works by Stubbs, Goya, Turner, Gericault, and many more artists of the period. Stay tuned!
Although the horses and bulls start heading home this weekend following the close of the Fort Worth Stock Show, our beautiful Stubbs oil painting of an Arabian stallion will remain on view in the Kahn Building south gallery! Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo
