Abstract

"The lively sketch of the composition is ruled by the waving masses of colour of brown, black and white horses, which are led into sight. They seem to be mixed up with red ribbons, red bridles, edgings and red stripes on the saddle-clothes. On top of this the clenched mass of white clouds as an echo on the bodies of the horses. Shown is the Horse Fair in Paris, in the background you can see the dome La Salpetriere. There are two versions of this world-famous painting, they are almost equal in their proportions, but different in their size." (C. Steckner, 1992)
