Stubbs, George, England 1724 to 1806 Oil Paintings
George Stubbs was brought into the world in Liverpool, child of a currier. He had at least conventional guidance. He was momentarily a student of the minor painter Hamlet Winstanley. This was clearly enough to dispatch Stubbs off as a commonplace picture painter. As such, he worked in Wigan, Leeds, York, and at Hull. When at York, he realized sufficient life structures to give private exercises to clinical understudies at York Hospital. This prompted his payments in 1751 to represent a book on maternity care by Dr. John Burton. He took in enough of drawing from a nearby etcher to scratch the plates himself. George Stubbs has a place with the craftsmen whose names are re-found in the twentieth century.
At his time, he was known distinctly to a thin circle of noble athletes and pony sweethearts; for his peers, he was a simple pony painter. An expanded essential perspective on the twentieth century uncovered the full degree of his accomplishments, developments, creativity, and force. His artworks are still, for the most part, in private assortments in the houses they executed.
